When a total solar eclipse passes overhead "Little Egypt", the celestial phenomenon spurs a collaboration between residents of Cairo, IL, and filmmakers to craft a collage of vignettes that defy the misperception of Cairo as a "dying community" eclipsed by post-industrialism. Despite economic hardship and a deep-seeded history of racial injustice, this film celebrates a vibrant community and its path towards resurgence.
