Synopsis

7 years ago, director Kara Kurcz started rolling the cameras as she and her husband Brian emptied their bank accounts and launched a company out of their two-bedroom apartment called Solas. The idea behind Solas was simple a light in a handbag. However, the execution of starting a company, manufacturing a product, and making sure the line was successful was not as simple. With tenacity and hard work, they quickly proved naysayers wrong. By the second year of business, Karas lighted handbag line was debuting on the red carpet. By their third year in business, Solas and Kara, made the pages of over 30 national news publications. In the fourth year, they had over a million dollars in sales. Kara, kept the cameras rolling but had no idea Solas would face some of the worst economic times in America's history in the 5th and 6th year of business. Crippled by the recession she was left asking herself, Does the Dream exist? She knew she didn't have the answer so she decided crisscross the country looking for someone who did. Big TIME parallels Karas story, along with the insight of some of Americas most creative and successful entrepreneurs and innovators. They openly share with her their experiences and give advice on what it takes to make it. If you want to make it in the big TIME there are two things you need to know. There is no such thing as an overnight success and everyone has a story.
