Little Pink House dramatically chronicles the story of Susette Kelo, a resident of New London, Connecticut whose home was seized by the city under eminent domain as part of a redevelopment plan for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Kelo’s struggle, along with her neighbors, eventually reached the US Supreme Court, whose 5-4 decision in Kelo v. City of New London affirmed the government’s right to condemn a neighborhood for the interests of private developers and corporate interests, and sparked widespread public and legislative effort to limit eminent domain abuses.
