While the film deals with the hard truths facing those in the industry, it is also a celebration of daily news; sometimes sad, at times surprising, always real.

We will see you at The Garage, 110 W. 7th Street, on Thursday, February 20th.  The doors open at 7 p.m. and the screening starts at 8 p.m.
