This student film takes a look at the small town of Camden during the 1960s. Much of the town is focused on the locomotive and logging industry created by the W. T. Carter and Brother Lumber Company in 1898. The film revolves around interviews with Camden residents. Former logging employees, a hotel owner, a family, and a pastor all briefly describe their lives and rolls in the old town. By the end of the film, the narrator recounts possible modernization and decreasing poverty in the future with the sale of W. T. Carter and Brother Lumber Company to the United States Plywood Corporation.
