Dark clouds hang over the cornfields of Storm Lake, Iowa, which has seen its fair share of change in the 40 years since Big Agriculture came to town. Residents there confront a changing community as global forces threaten their precarious existence. Enter Pulitzer-prize winner Art Cullen and his family-run newspaper, The Storm Lake Times. Day-in and day-out, the Cullens deliver local news and biting editorials on a shoestring budget for their readers. Come hell or pandemic, they’ll fight to preserve this town they call home. Directors Levison and Resius embed with Cullen to give a real time look at quality journalism at risk, yet willing itself to survive.
