"Good Enough"

by Cara Beth Heath, MFA

Presented by:

In Good Enough, Cara Beth Heath takes us back to a time where America was making war while the women of Kalamazoo were making guitars.

Following the journeys of six women, Good Enough takes an unyielding look at these women's lives, loves, and the way they must live in a world at war with tension taught as the strings of a

Gibson guitar.
