Season 3 – Episode 1
Detroit in the 1970’s - a city of industry. A place known for toughness and grit saw many of its workers flee for the suburbs at quitting time. That was supposed to be their safe space. A place to escape the danger and crime of the city. So people moved to places like Oakland County to get away. They found their safe space and built a world around it. Mothers and fathers felt comfortable letting their children roam the neighborhood until the street lights came on.
Life was great and then suddenly, it wasn't.
