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?

"Hiding In Plain Sight" is a socially conscious, accurate, well acted, written and directed film by rising indie film director M. Legend Brown. It tells the true-to-life story of a working class family of four. The film recants the tribulations of the Blackmon family, a middle class, educated working family who fall on hard times and through the cracks of our American society. Without making a political statement or blaming anyone, it tells the real life drama currently playing out in our cities and communities to real-life families. It is shown via engaging and compelling characters in a narrative style format. Performances - Along with a great and charming turn by film and television icon, Irma P. Hall, a solid performance by lead actor Kelly O'Neil Jackson with an exceptional, break-out performance for newcomer Sharice Henry Chasi in the role of Josephine Blackmon. In total, Hiding In Plain Sight, is definitely a must watch!
