This film is about America's largest museum of contemporary art, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), which opened in 1999 in an enormous abandoned factory in the film maker's hometown, North Adams, Massachusetts.

Told primarily through the eyes of the filmmaker and her family, most of whom worked in the factory before it closed, the film charts the subtle changes in the spirit of a region from the intimate view of the kitchen table. It is about hope--the tentative, dangerous notion of hope in a town that was widely viewed as hopeless
