Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Tells the story of Cathy Crowe, one of Toronto’s 50 or so street nurses. Shows her visiting the homeless tending to blistered feet, infected wounds, fragile psyches and finding shelter when temperatures drop. But it also shows her passionate advocacy on their behalf in writing letters to the editors, appearing on radio and television, making submissions to the U.N. and making pleas to various levels of government.
