The Hollywood Reporter said the new film is inspired by a Los Angeles Times op-ed piece written by a retiring librarian, who wanted to discuss the issue of libraries becoming havens for homeless and mentally ill people due to cuts in social programs.

"I really enjoy shooting in LA and I think, that in the middle of a strike, to put 200 Angelenos to work is significant," Estevez said.
