At the beginning of America's engagement in World War II, President Franklin Roosevelt called on the country to become "an arsenal of democracy" - major producers of war materiel to help defeat the Axis powers. This new film explores how the Windy City answered that call, and how a mutually beneficial relationship between FDR and Chicago mayor Ed Kelly (the original "big city boss") developed.
