General Note:
Originally produced in the United States as a motion picture in 2016.
"Throughout the summer of 2014, a corporate food fight played out in dozens of communities impacting tens of thousands of workers and the economies of three states. When the faction of the Market Basket board headed by Arthur S. Demoulas fired his cousin and arch-rival Arthur T. Demoulas as long-time CEO of the successful supermarket chain, it set off a firestorm that sparked one of most unique corporate dramas in American history. It's what the New York Times called "the last stand for the middle class." Within days of hearing the news that their beloved "Artie T" had been axed, several high-ranking managers resigned, others were fired. Truckers stopped trucking. Warehouses stopped supplying. Vendors stopped shipping. Customers stopped shopping. Employees picketed in parking lots. Practically overnight, the $4 billion dollar business, with 71 stores scattered across three states, ground to halt. Governors from two states were called in to negotiate a settlement. Throughout the entire summer, workers, managers and customers were galvanized. They didn't want more money, better benefits or work conditions. They only wanted back Arthur T, a quiet leader who operated on simple, long-held family values he learned from his grandfather who started the business nearly 100 years ago -- treat your workers well, give customers "more for their dollar", and you'll build the American dream. This is the story of the battle to save Market Basket, and about the power of ordinary, passionate people to rewrite corporate history."--From film website.
