Starting with the accidental discovery of the significant history of a modest dwelling on a traditionally African-American street in Hagerstown, Maryland, this documentary traces the roots of middle America’s racial, economic and social interactions. Through the lens of this house, the rise and fall of the African-American community in small rust belt towns and cities across America is told. The film also explores how the house's discovery, renovation and renewal could also signal a change in the fortunes of the street and the larger community.
