Storyline

Los Angeles' Skid Row is home to one of the largest homeless populations in the United States. And we found, inside that community, the remarkable and enormously moving stories of Olympic athletes, Harvard attorneys, accomplished musicians, scholars. We found poverty, drugs and mental illness, of course - but more importantly we found life, hope and incredibly powerful human journeys. Written by David Langness

One of the strongest and best documentaries I have ever seen.
31 July 2019 | by zkikoSee all my reviews

One of the strongest and best documentaries I have ever seen. A must watch to even be shown in high schools or college. I watched this a few years ago and still I am very much influenced by what I have seen. Even though I knew that many homeless people self medicate and take certain drugs to counter the side effects of certain pharmaceuticals they have been prescribed. It still made me learn more about certain lives , lives that are unrepresented, whilst 'we' keep watching movies, shows, vlogs, instagrams etc about the privileged whiney narcissists. This doc shows how the system - made for the basic healthy norm' is flawed and the invisible people fall through the mazes of that system. Time and time again, also in Europe where I am from. I am so glad that this documentary exists and that it voices for the invisible and voiceless and can be shown to those that easily judge and say 'all homeless people are bums'. Their pathetic need to compartmentalize the world in simple black and white boxes so they won't have to think or feel. Those ..are the people that truly ruin this world..those and the narcissistic that just don't care about none but themselves. The system is flawed, so it's on use human beings to think, to introspect and empathise..so we can truly help one another. Damn..this world is an f'in trip.
