What does the concept of American freedom and independence even mean for a community full of drug addicts, strippers, war veterans, and ex-convicts living on the margins of society in a Southern small town? This detailed portrait of Louisiana residents from low-income backgrounds reveals how easy it is to despise people who are more inclined to be racist and militaristic regardless of what their life stories are or the difficulties they face in their daily lives. This feature film based on real characters and stories creates the illusion of a documentary that acts as a socio-critical and empathetic study of "rednecks" excluded from liberal-democratic discourse.(IDFF Ji.hlava)
