Brunswick County, N.C., Sheriff Ronald E. Hewitt is the subject of this cinema verité-style documentary, the first in a series chronicling American workers. Delivering a funny, intimate portrait of a workaday hero, director Daniel Kraus follows the Southern lawman as he hunts down an escaped bank robber, raids a video poker operation, recovers a stolen truck filled with ceramic lawn ornaments and more.
