Storyline

What happens when resources run out, unemployment is denied, and savings accounts are depleted? Darius and Josephine Blackmon find themselves living in their car with two young children. Family and friends that lent them money are no more due to their own financial hardship. Kevin Allen, a prominent school teacher, feels that he is making a difference by helping parents keep their children in school with government vouchers, filling in where the paychecks stop. Darius and his family try to keep up appearances during the day and stay out of sight at night, all while holding on to one another in a hidden America. What happens when the two men's lives cross? Written by M. Legend Brown

Heart Warming and Thought Provoking
13 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hiding in Plain Sight is a story that may not be very foreign to those reading this review. A tale (based on real experiences) of a family effected by the recent economic crises. Kelly O'Neil Jackson gives a riveting performance as Darius Blackmon...trying to make a way for his wife and two children. Its a story of true love, compassion and faith. This is a MUST SEE movie. You will leave the theater with a sense of gratitude but also a true need to do for those less fortunate. Beautifully directed by M. Legend Brown. He has proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Get out to see this film and request that it be screened in your city! --- MUST SEE/NEED TO SEE---
