Martin Sheen agreed to narrate the film during a break he took from washing dishes at Bread and Roses in Venice California which serves breakfast to people who are homeless or hungry. The dish washing sink is still called Lake Estevez. See more »
It is quite remarkable in this documentary how you start to forget that you are watching a documentary and start feeling like you are living on the street as well - or at least following the main characters around on the streets of Santa monica. This sunny coastal town more known for movie starlets with little poodles sticking out of their Fred Segal shopping bags and shiny expensive cars rolling around palm tree lined boulevards while shallow people on cell phones ignore them is also home to a large amount of homeless people - equally ignored by shallow people on cell phones. There are some scenes in this documentary where the police arrives and wants to move some transients along and you can see how they spot the camera and decide on a different tone than they would have used had there been nobody observing. Well worth seeing.
