Powerful, deeply felt drama without the typical hyperbole
13 April 2004 | by IslandMadMacsSee all my reviews

This movie short showcases the stress, humiliation and perception of the homeless in thirty-minutes of film better than most major "productions" which wrestles with the issue. Filmed through the eyes of a small family who have fallen on hard times you see the trauma and anger, sometimes even humor, living with no permanent roof over ones head.

I'm not a liberal and am angered at the blatant abuse of many social programs, but this film will change the way you perceive some of the people who have fallen through the cracks. With the growing state of unemployment and credit bankruptcies occurring at a shocking rate - this short film will give everyone pause before "looking away".
