Detroit was once a symbol and a capital: a symbol of the American Dream, and the capital of the car industry. Ford, Chrysler and General Motors drew the key lines of a city which was devoted to them. Yet, in half a century, it has declined from a capital to a ghost town. The car industry faltered, thousands lost their jobs, people left in droves and hope started to die. The empty spaces keep on growing and the town is vanishing.
