Storyline

"The Grapes of Wrath: We Shall Overcome" is a documentary film authorized by the Estate of Elaine A. Steinbeck. The film explores the legacy and meanings of John Steinbeck's American realist novel "The Grapes of Wrath" (1939) while also revealing the struggles of dispossessed families in the U.S. today. The release of "The Grapes of Wrath" shook America to its core with its unflinching depictions of poverty, homelessness, starvation and misery within the U.S. and its exploration of the imbalance of power between the wealthy and the poor. This film examines the impact of the novel since its publication 75 years ago and utilizes its influence to shed light on the current state of similar social issues in America today.
