Made in China, filmed in China and Minnesota, shows how access to jobs is pulling millions out of poverty in China, while causing profound changes to life in Middle America. Li Jieli has left her family in the Chinese countryside for a job in a modern electronics factory, representing millions of young women who must send money home to help build a future for their families. In the depressed Minnesota Iron Range, former ironmill workers like Wayne Patterson try to find opportunities in other fields of work, while friends return to work in a mine reopened because of demand for iron from China.
