By James Agee and Walker Evans, dramatised for radio by Stanley Richardson.

In 1936, Fortune magazine in NYC commissioned journalists James Agee and Walker Evans to do a lifestyle article on tenant farmers in Alabama.

What the two delivered was an emotional and quite shocking portrait of an impoverished and near feudal existence - a portrait that Fortune found itself quite unable to print.

Starring Nathan Osgood, Garrick Hagon, Matt Givens, Dean Hill and Stacey Zuckerman.

Director Eoin O'Callaghan.
