The Grapes of Wrath

Trasfoco: And Life Goes On Section

The Great Depression swept across the USA and millions of people lost their jobs, homes and lands. In rural areas, like the state of Oklahoma, huge dust storms caused by overexploitation of the land only worsened the slump. Driven off their land by new agricultural companies, a family of por farmers travels westward to California, a promised land with decent wages. Turned into pariahs in their own country, they will be met with contempt and rejection in the places they arrive to. Union fights increase while the police take the side of corporations. Only family bonds and the projects promoted by the federal government through the New Deal will improve their situation.
