this is concise documentary that looks at small towns all over the country (U.S.). it is on the surface good, but there isn't enough...breadth (let's go with that). i wanted it to go further than the four small towns it captured; it doesn't feel complete. there's the well-known lesson of local issues are more worthy of our attention than the national ones that runs through it. at the end, there’s a guy that reads a passage from Shakespeare's "Julius Ceasar" that's actually kinda profound lol. go, small towns!! (or not, if terrible)!
