Film phase: Completed
A gun toting 83-year old woman refuses to sell her house to the power plant next door. But despite her refusal, the plant has moved ahead with a 20 million-dollar deal to buy out most of Cheshire and bulldoze all the homes. A story of money, power, corporate dominance of American life, and the increasingly difficult choices we face surrounding coal and the environment, Cheshire, Ohio makes us think twice about home.
