Now a successful filmmaker, Lorna Tucker (Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist; Amà) was once a teenage runaway sleeping rough on the streets of London. For this frank, forceful and inspiring documentary, she returns to her former haunts and speaks to current and former homeless people about why, 25 years later, record numbers of people are still reduced to living on Britain’s streets.

As we hear the life stories of extraordinary individuals and learn how the system has both aided and failed them, this raw, intimate and unforgettable film asks:


Why hasn’t public policy placed this issue firmly in the past?


How can we help?


And what contribution can those with experience of homelessness make to putting effective solutions in place?

“A tender reminder that homelessness

should not be considered an inevitable

part of modern life.”

— Adam Buxton

“A humanising odyssey into

homelessness in the UK.”


— The Lancet

Despite living in the world’s sixth-largest economy, over 300,000 people in the UK are still homeless. This injustice must end.

Write to your MP asking them to create more affordable social housing, establish more projects which provide wraparound care for the homeless, and expand treatment for addiction and mental health.
