Summary

Fink explores some of the profound changes brought about by Latino migration to the U.S. south by following a community of Guatemalan immigrants to Morganton, N.C., as they work to adapt a home-tradition of community building and political activism and struggle for workers' rights in a local poultry processing plant.
