We the People: The Market Basket Effect traces the events that led 25,000 employees and 2 million customers across New England to stand behind embattled CEO Arthur T. Demoulas and wrest control of a multibillion dollar grocery empire from an activist board of directors led by Artie T.’s cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas.

A vivid and thorough portrayal of the most memorable labor protest in recent American history, We the People investigates a question at the heart of ongoing economic debate: can regular people really band together to alter the balance of power in major corporations, or is the case of Market Basket a fairytale victory?

Narrator Michael Chiklis – who was born and raised in Lowell, the same Massachusetts town where the Demoulas grocery empire was established – weaves through on-the-ground footage and thoughtful expert analysis to find out.
