Something Beautiful in Maine: The Way We Get By Documentary
The Way We Get By Sometimes all it takes is a handshake to change a life.
On call 24/7 for the past six years, three senior citizens have made history by greeting nearly one million U.S. troops at a tiny airport in Maine. Filled with unexpected turns, their uplifting and emotional journey demonstrates the meaning of community at a time when America needs it most.
“’The Way We Get By’ is not so much a slice of life as the whole pie, the highs and lows of twilight living, all found and filmed in a terminal at an airport in Maine. What a country.”
∼ Dan Zak, WASHINGTON POST
“’The Way We Get By’ celebrates the human heart.” – Melanie Addington, Oxford Film Freak
