2008 NR

Shining a new light on the plight of the homeless in America, this affecting documentary takes viewers into the lives of several Los Angeles residents living on the mean streets of the city's skid row. With every day a fight for survival -- even in California's sun-kissed Southland -- these men and women must navigate a landscape of drugs, crime, mental illness and even murder just to meet their daily needs. This film captures it all.
