In a super-rich Texas suburb, students drive costly SUVs and sports cars to high school while their teachers commute in Toyotas and Hondas. In the Hamptons, people with old money and older names sniff at nouveau riche neighbors seeking membership in the country club. In Ohio, a single mom trudges daily to her job at Burger King, leaving two young sons alone. The program encourages viewers to reflect on their own views about classism and question how social divisions comport with the idea that all people are created equal.
