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

Heartwrenching, yet encouraging.
18 September 2012 | by Eleanor-ThreattSee all my reviews

My husband and I attended the September 15th viewing of "Hiding in Plain Sight" and absolutely enjoyed it. It wasn't just about select families falling on hard times, rather it was about so much more. It fleshed out the stories of "real people" living day to day...that had...at some point and still do...the same dreams all of us on the other side of homelessness possess. We felt for these characters, emotionally and spiritually. It shed a serious light and gave pause for an even more serious dialogue for how close we ALL are to homelessness and what each of us can do...from our own vantage points to help remedy this ever-growing epidemic. Do yourself a Huge Favor and Go See and Support this Worthwhile Film!!!
