Episode Summary

Butte, America

Butte, America is a documentary that explores a mining town and the sacrifices that a small band of immigrants made. Speaking sixteen languages between them, the group formed deep relationships as they labored in the copper mines six days each week. On Sundays, they went to church, and the town mourned the newly dead from the harsh conditions.
