280 Days

280 days is a mini-documentary of the heroic efforts of the members of the Columbus Education Association in their fight against Senate Bill 5. Using never-before seen photographs and video footage, the film follows the legislation's path from its introduction in the Senate to the citizen veto that repealed SB 5 in the name of the middle class.
