On October 15 2011, inspired by the social movement “Occupy Wall Street”, large numbers of people in cities all over the world organized similar demonstrations against the growing social economic inequality.
This documentary shows the small community that developed in Amsterdam as a result of that demonstration. Because Sara Blom visited the square with her video camera every day for seven weeks the result is an intimate portrayal. It shows the evolution of the movement in a specific encampment, yet tells a universal story of the struggle for social change that took place on public square everywhere at the same time.
