This is a deep, gritty, richly realized Film that is a Low-Budget Story that is a surprising survey of Street Life and Street Characters that explores Addiction, Child Trafficking, Family, and Redemption in more dimensions than is usually expected in this type of thing.

The Acting is superb all around and it is an uncompromising look at a Zone that must seem like Twilight to theses Folks who are all on the verge of entering the Darkness.
This unknown and unseen Movie is worth checking out for Neo-Noir Fans and even those who like no-holds-barred Crime Films. it is authentic, compelling and somewhat Original. A Mini-Sleeper that should gain more of an Audience as word gets out.
