That Garrison has created such a vibrant, moving document of such an evanescent state of grace is a small miracle in itself.

Garrison's thoughtful, eloquent documentary illuminates the reality that all work matters and has dignity, no matter the invisibility of the labor.
Warm, delightful and poignant. You'll never look at a garbage collector the same way again.
