Storyline

What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and library officials when a conscientious librarian turns the Cincinnati Public Library into an impromptu homeless shelter for one night during the most brutal cold snap in recent Cincinnati history. However while providing warmth and shelter to the library's mentally ill homeless patrons, the Occupy type sit-in doesn't sit well with the library's administration or law enforcement. As sharply drawn sides battle over how to handle the crisis, a pivotal question looms: How can we care for our fellow citizens who are unable to care for themselves? A richly depicted character piece, "The Public" tackles mental illness, one of the nation's most challenging social issues, inside one of our most vital, yet crumbling institutions, the public library - our last bastion of democracy.
