An unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati to the front doors of the public library. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the libraries patrons, many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized, as well as an exhausted and overwhelmed staff of librarians, 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.
