Storm Lake


Dark clouds hang over the cornfields of Storm Lake, Iowa, which has changed a lot in the 40 years since Big Agriculture arrived. Migrant workers flock here, welcome and not, for their slice of the American Dream. The people of Storm Lake confront a changing community as global forces threaten their precarious existence. Enter: 63-year-old Pulitzer-prize winner Art Cullen and his family-run newspaper, The Storm Lake Times. Day-in and day-out, the Cullens deliver local news and biting editorials on a shoestring budget for their 3,000 readers. Come hell or pandemic, they’ll fight to preserve this town they call home. There’s simply too much at stake.
