An unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the patrons turn the building into a homeless shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what's really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
Starring Alec Baldwin, Emilio Estevez, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Gabrielle Union, Christian Slater, Jeffrey Wright, Michael K. Williams, Che "Rhymefest" Smith and Jacob Vargas
