A designer Emily Pilloton mudou-se para o rural Condado de Bertie, na Carolina do Norte, para participar numa experiência arrojada de transformação de design levada a cabo pela comunidade. Ela ensina uma turma de designers, chamada Studio H, que atrai as mentes e os corpos dos alunos do secundário enquanto desenvolve um design inteligente e novas oportunidades para o condado mais pobre do estado.
