The film profiles Day, co-founder (along with Peter Maurin) of the Catholic Worker Movement that began as a newspaper to expose injustices during the Great Depression. It soon expanded to become a network of houses of hospitality to welcome the poor and destitute. Over the years, Day developed her understanding of how to follow the Biblical challenge to be “peacemakers” by resisting all forms of military intervention. She protested America’s involvement in World War II and was severely criticized. Day was arrested multiple times for protesting America’s nuclear buildup, and she led resistance against the war in Vietnam.
