Acclaimed director Louis Malle's documentary examines the small Minnesota farming town of Glencoe at two separate times. In 1979, Malle profiles the town's sleepy, sometimes charming way of life and the citizens' less-than-refined values. When Malle and his crew return six years later, they encounter a town seized by economic woe. Farms are shutting down, citizens are angry with President Ronald Reagan, and an American way of life may be gone for good.
