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, twenty-five 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 Kickstarter campaign has been launched to raise important funds needed for publishing and distributing the film in national cinemas and communities. Gratefully received donations are essential for the film to have the impact to change the system. Writer and Director Lorna Tucker said: “This film opens up an understanding about what leads people to homelessness and what can be done to end it. For too long the broken system has let people down. This film gives them their voice and shows something can be done! Let’s start a revolution! We can end homelessness for good!''
