In 1913, seventy-four people died in a still mysterious incident during a mining strike in Calumet, Michigan. The deaths prompted Woody Guthrie to write a famous ballad, “1913 Massacre.” Nearly a century later, the filmmakers follow Woody’s son, singer/songwriter Arlo Guthrie, back to Calumet and speak to the last living witnesses of the tragedy, discovering a town still struggling with its past.
