In contrast to a regime of tyranny where a person's welfare is of no consequence, we live in a democracy where the protection and promotion of our rights, interests, and welfare are expected. This film tackles some of our democratic nation's most challenging issues, including poverty, homelessness, and mental illness, and portrays the library as one of the last bastions of democracy in action.
