It's tragic that in the world's wealthiest country, 4.2 million teenagers are homeless. Former Navy veteran and homeless youth, director Rotimi Rainwater shows viewers the realities of life on the streets as he travels the country to shine a light on the epidemic of youth homelessness in America. With the help of celebrities and politicians who have been homeless themselves or advocates of the repressed, this film takes a large scale issue down to a very personal level.

What really stood out to me was his connection with the street kids... I just felt like it was heart wrenching.

No contribution is too small, Rainwater and his subjects remind us. Not even a minor act of kindness like giving a warm, welcoming smile to a kid who could use the dignifying acknowledgement.

These stories are powerful enough to push past the documentary's filmmaking missteps and still make an impact on its audience.

February 27, 2020 | Full Review…

The film serves the valuable purpose of shedding a much-needed spotlight on a problem that, as anyone who's recently walked on any city's streets can attest, only seems to be getting worse.

February 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Sometimes its prosaic filmmaking does it no favors, but the film's ability to move the conversation forward merits attention.

Rainwater's compassionate, fearless documentary is focused on finding ways to humanize the issue of being unhoused and give it urgency.
