Working elevates and explores the hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American. In the course of one twenty-four hour workday, the audience meets and hears stories of various workers including the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the mill worker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman and the housewife. This examination of people from all walks of life proves that it's more than just a job for the average working American.

Directed by Kassy Skoretz
