To make ends meet, Americans are working longer hours across multiple jobs. This modern reality of non-stop work has resulted in an unexpected phenomenon: the flourishing of 24-hour daycare centers. This verité documentary explores the personal cost of our modern economy through the stories of two working mothers and a childcare provider - whose lives intersect at a 24-hour daycare center.
