Iraq War veteran Herold Noel suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and lives out of his car in Brooklyn. Using Noel's story as a fulcrum, this doc examines the wider issue of homeless U.S. military veterans-from Vietnam to Iraq-who have to fight tooth-and-nail to receive the benefits promised to them by their government.

Great documentary about the soldiers that are being forgotten at home and are left to fend for themselves.
An absolutely fantastic film. When I saw this film at its premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival I was extremely impressed how well this documentary got its point across without being politically biased. Too bad this film did not get a lot of publicity because it certainly deserves it. It shows how returning veterans from the current wars are being forgotten about at home. It uses statistics, emotion and intelligence to show the viewer how important this subject is and how it should be discussed in a wider forum. The film profiles a homeless veteran Herold Noel in his journey for a home and a stable job, all while battling PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.) Did I mention he also has a son to feed and put a roof over. Noel is forced to live in his car. He spends almost all of his time going to many different government agencies to seek for help and unfortunately he cannot find any.
