Caution, survival, and hope. The residents of Nickelsville, an organized homeless encampment in Seattle Washington, share how they became homeless; caution how quickly it can happen, and how they persevere. The director of the Low Income Housing Institute and a district court judge who presides over child custody cases involving homeless families provide institutional context. Christopher Ruffo and Casey Jaywork of The Seattle Weekly will participate in a post-screening panel discussion.

The filmmaker will be in attendance, and a panel discussion will take place following the film.
