EVERY STORY MATTERS.

Downtown Cincinnati librarians Stuart Goodson and Myra see their regular winter day shaken up when homeless patrons decide to take shelter in their library for the night. What starts as a peaceful sit-in quickly escalates into a face-off with the police and the media.

"Estevez does an elegant job with this setup, creating a low-key, uncondescending portrait of lives on the edge." - Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

"Writer/director/star Estevez achieves a career high with this empathetic look at homelessness, concentrating on a rousing, inspiring story, rich characters, and a fluid, detailed visual style." - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media

"It's smart work and edifying, with Estevez finding an original topic to explore with compassion and engrossing drama." - Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
