Introduction by Krista Loughton including singing of Welcoming Song by Raven Hart
Filmed over a decade, this is a deeply visceral film about transformation through human connection. Based in Victoria, BC, four charismatic people reveal the heartrending realities of their lives. The severe challenges of life on the street are portrayed with an unapologetic openness, in both emotive and humorous ways. All are struggling with addiction issues rooted in their painful childhood histories.
