A new mother takes us on a tour of Hamilton, a Rust Belt city born of the Industrial Revolution and dying a slow death due to globalization. This mother represents the city's next wave of inhabitants: the artists and young parents who swarm a run-down area for its affordability, inevitably reshaping the neighborhoods they take over.
Creation looks at gentrification from the inside out, an artist mother making a home and neighborhood for her family, struggling to find her place amid the existing and emerging communities.
