Abstract: A feature length documentary that uncovers a retail giant's assault on families and American values. The film dives into the deeply personal stories and everyday lives of families and communities struggling to fight a goliath.

A Missouri family loses its business after Wal-Mart is given over $2 million to open its doors down the road.
