Aside from the requisite playground and ice rinks, Toronto's Dufferin Grove Park is home to an organic farmer's market, weekly family dinners, a theatre troupe and numerous cultural activities. It's a comfortable public space where everyone is welcome. But when city inspectors raid the park on Christmas Eve and discover huge puppets, a baking oven and kitchen sharing the park's dedicated Zamboni building, the flourishing neighbourhood group is threatened with evacuation. Cavan Young's Citizen Z is a tongue-in-cheek look at what happens when a small community, including some wily puppets, takes on city hall in a fight to rewrite the rules.
