No Umbrella

No Umbrella - Election Day in the City is an unblinking look at the 2004 US Election Day failures in one of Ohio's poorest neighborhoods. In the most hotly contested state in the country, gridlock at inner city polls ignites tempers and sets off charges of conspiracy.

No Umbrella drops us squarely into the chaos as we watch the irascible octogenarian councilwoman, Ms. Fannie Lewis, take on polling place breakdowns, an unresponsive bureaucracy and an increasingly agitated electorate.
