It tells the story of “the micro-entrepreneurial world of street vending in our nation’s capital, and explores how two unlikely business partners navigate the cultural, economic, and regulatory barriers standing in their way.” Baylen Linnekin found it to be a smart, measured, and informative look at a difficult profession that’s made no easier thanks to long-stalled regulatory reform.
