Synopsis / Plot
In the wake of Argentina's spectacular economic collapse in 2001, Latin America's most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment. In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act - the take - has the power to turn the globalisation debate on its head.

Avi Lewis/producer Avi Lewis (Counterspin) and writer/producer and renowned author Naomi Klein (No logo) take viewers inside the lives of ordinary visionaries, as they reclaim their work, their dignity and their democracy.

An Anti-Globalization documentary. With opinions from Bill Clinton, Gustavo Cordera, Freddy Espinoza, Nestor Kirchner, Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis, Carlos Menem, Lalo Paret, Juan Domingo Perón, Anoop Singh, Luis Zanon, and many more.
