Well worth a viewing
14 August 2017 | by org1andrewSee all my reviews

I watched this on an Air Canada flight. The characters are fun to watch and have some amazing stories to tell. It's not the most mind-shattering of documentaries on homelessness and drug addiction, but it serves a good reminder that occasional crack use doesn't necessarily lead to devastation, and that those who have lived on the streets for years can still provide quite a powerful and productive input back into society, unlike the people in suits we see on Bay Street, who only make things worse for everyone else.
