Occupy San Diego is a grassroots movement that started on October 7, 2011 in solidarity with the ongoing peaceful protests that began in New York City on September 17, 2011. These protests have spread quickly through out the U.S. and to other countries. The occupiers plan to protest until they see the changes they hope for which are outlined in their list of demands. The occupiers call themselves the 99% and are composed of diverse identities and socioeconomic backgrounds.

This film captures the demonstrators as they protest and make their causes known to whoever will listen. They believe that corporate greed and unequal wealth distribution has limited the opportunities of the 99%, and has left many feeling as if the American dream is an unachievable illusion. While the city of San Diego no longer allows the protestors to sleep at the Civic Center, the occupiers continue to assemble and seek change and growth despite obstacles and criticism, and have committed themselves to sustaining the movement's growth.
