Independent America The Two-Lane Search for Mom and Pop

Independent America The Two-Lane Search for Mom and Pop

Dismayed by the ubiquity of corporate chains, former MSNBC reporter Hanson Hosein and NBC reporter Heather Hughes sets off on a road trip across America to search for Mom and Pop businesses. Across the country independent bookstores, restaurants, and grocery stores vanish, driven out of business by monolithic big-box retailers like Wal-Mart. The filmmakers also discover widespread discontent and resistance to corporate monopolies.
