Poverty is a state or condition in which a person or a community lacks the financial resources and essentials for a minimum standard of living. The definition clearly shows that the income level from employment is so low that citizens cannot meet basic human needs.

Statistics show that there is a progress in reducing poverty in the past two decades. As of 2015, less than 10% of the world’s population lives on less than $1.9 per day.

In the US, the poverty rate in 2018 reached 11.8 percent, which is down 0.5 percent from the previous year. And it continues to go down.

Despite everything, there are still people living in less than basic standards. This documentary takes a look at 11 year old Yuriy and 13 year old friend Max. They are just two of the millions of children living in poverty on the Russian streets.

Many homeless children suffer from diseases and attacks from pedophiles.
