BAD AXE is the story of an American family fighting for respect while seeking to preserve their identity in a small, rural Michigan community.  As they work to keep their American dream alive as owners of a local restaurant, their day to day aspirations run up against the backdrop of the 2020 election. As local tensions rise,  the family is forced to reckon with a global pandemic, racial tensions, and generational scars from Cambodia’s “killing fields.” David Siev’s film is a powerful portrait of contemporary America, a place where political tensions color the everyday fabric of our lives.
