ABOUT THE FILM
Glen Dunzweiler was faced with the threat of becoming homeless. What was once perceived as a world reserved only for lowlifes, drug addicts, and the disabled now seemed like a very real possibility for Glen and his family. This realization led him to question, what is it to be homeless in the United States?
With only his production equipment, a car, and some bare essentials, Glen set out across America to discover what led people to a life on the streets, what it was like, and what they did to survive. In order to better understand the homeless, those formerly displaced and the service providers he would interview, Glen chose to live virtually down-and-out by sticking to a minimal budget and sleeping only in his car or on a friendly couch when he could find one. Glen quickly experienced firsthand the desperation, irritability, and the unstableness that comes from lack of sleep and going without the things we take for granted.
Glen discovers that homelessness is unbiased and could happen to anyone without a support network to fall back on. By traveling the country and speaking with destitute men and women, Glen confirms that homeless people are people first, and deserve not our pity, but our respect and our help.
