Written and directed by Robert Jury, WORKING MAN is a classic American story designed for a contemporary world. When the last factory in a small Rust Belt town closes its doors, an unlikely hero emerges in dutiful, quiet Allery Parkes (Peter Gerety, HBO's The Wire). A career employee of the factory, the aging Allery can’t reconcile how to live a life simply sitting at home doing nothing, and against the advice and pleas of his loving wife, Iola (Oscar nominee Talia Shire, ROCKY), he forms an unlikely friendship with his charismatic neighbor, Walter Brewer (Billy Brown, ABC's How to Get Away with Murder), in order to revive the defunct factory. As their community rallies around them—and as their former corporate bosses strategize how to implode this unexpected movement—Allery learns that he might be something he never thought possible: a leader.
