Summary An inspiring film about community that addresses the changing role of women and how powerful ordinary people can be when they join together to fight for something they believe in. Racial tensions, cutbacks in municipal services, and a changing economy threaten a lively Brooklyn neighborhood. Traditional homemakers from various ethnic backgrounds organize and lead the struggle to save their community.
