Synopsis

In this moving and entertaining portrait, drawn from the memories of thos who knew her best, Dorothy day emerges as a woman of courage, humour and love, who left an unforgettable mark on the lives of all she touched. Included are voices of those who knew Day as a friend, a writer, a mother, a champion of the oppressed, a spiritual guide. They tell what it was like to march with her on picket lines, to go to jail, to pray the rosary, to discuss her favourite novels or the news of the day. This collective portrait best captures her many sides as a woman who was both ordinary and unique.
