Dorothy Day was no saint. She lived hard, made mistakes and endured the consequences. But the unquenchable fire burning within her could not be contained. She wanted to make a difference. During the Depression, she vowed to house the homeless, feed the hungry and tend the sick. Easily said, but not easily done. Especially when her total finances amounted to 97 cents in a battered container. Yet she persisted, walking on frequently stormy waters of faith.

Popular stars and important themes combine in this compelling story of the "American Mother Teresa", filmed by Paulist Pictures (Romero) from a script by "ER" writer and executive producer John Wells. Moira Kelly delivers a winsome portrayal of twenty years in Day's life, during which she works as a Marxist journalist, leads a less-than-virtuous life, and undergoes a religious transformation that changes her life forever. The film shows Dorothy's struggle as she establishes the Catholic Worker movement and commits herself to a lifetime of peace-making, battling for justice and hands-on service to the poor. Day was certainly someone who put the words she wrote into controversial action.

Martin Sheen, Melinda Dillon and Brian Keith join Kelly in this moving saga of a faith not just believed but lived.
