The disabled members of the community confront City Hall about noncompliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The city is caught between lack of finances, cutting city services, and a federal court order. After the drama, a short documentary reviews the structure of federal and state government under the Constitution. The separation of powers and the system of checks and balances guard against abuse of power by the government.
