This documentary parallels the events of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York with those of the knitwear factory building collapse in Barletta, Italy 100 years later. Through archival footage and interviews, it explores the century-long journey through the rise and fall of labor and industrialization in the western world.

They are seemingly ubiquitous, yet nearly invisible. Many of Israel's security guards have immigrated to Israel and have taken work far different from the professions of their former lives. The heroes of this film include former musicians, a writer, and a surgeon, all striving to remain creative and necessary in spite of dramatic shifts in location and professional standing.
