The story of Dorothy Day, a remarkable woman who became one of the most influential human rights activists of the 20th century. Day defied social and political conventions in her quest for self-fulfillment in New York's bohemian Greenwich Village during the explosive era of the 1920s and '30s. She engaged in unconventional love affairs, boisterous barroom debates with such friends as Eugene O'Neill and Floyd Dell, and led radical demonstrations against social injustice. Surrounded by affluence, she chose to live in poverty among the poor of the Lower East Side. Deeply moved by the destitution and injustices around her, she underwent a powerful change and became a voice for the voiceless, a soldier for justice and a champion of non-violence.
