The film chronicles the life and death of the family-owned Ellington Supermarket. The film was produced and directed by a group of young friends who worked at the supermarket as it came under the threat of shutting down because a new Big Y chain store was coming to town. The store, a fixture in town for nearly 20 years, eventually closed in 2006 with the opening of the Big Y.
The movies was shot on location in 2005 and celebrates the small-town spirit of Ellington. Tim Norman, a 21-year-old Ellington resident who directed the film, told a reporter, "The concept of the farms and forest that made Ellington what it is, falling before the forces of progress, is very important to us. It's a film about the frustration that one feels over being powerless to halt these changes."
