The movie is about a bunch of homeless men, male library workers, and male public officials, and how the homeless men engage in a sit-in at the public library in order to keep warm from record low overnight temperatures. There are three major female characters: Myra (Stuart Goodson the librarian's coworker), Angela (his neighbor), and Rebecca (a reporter) who all eventually interact with each other. Although most of what they discuss is men--or rather, the man that the sit-in seems to be about, Goodson. However, I feel that I can justify this rating because of a little conversation Rebecca and Angela have about how Rebecca is having a bad day.
