The five-member company is made up of Jason Dirden, Wendell B. Franklin, Lynda Gravatt, Nikiya Mathis, and Adesola Osakalumi. In the work, the third of Morisseau's Detroit trilogy, a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city navigate the possibility of foreclosure. Power dynamics shift and they are pushed to the limits of survival. When the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred, how far over the lines are they willing to step?
