Poverty is an epidemic in the wealthiest nation on earth. With over 40 million Americans now living below the poverty line, many are falling through the social safety net. Homelessness, hunger, and desperation have taken hold in ways unimaginable just decades ago. In a country where a few can live like royalty, millions are forced to eke out an existence on the fringes of society.
This documentary exposes the heartbreaking stories of the forgotten people of America. It explores the life of a single mom who struggles to feed her children despite being employed full-time, and the countless others who find themselves living in cars, wooden huts, and on the streets. Through gripping interviews with those on the frontlines of the fight against poverty, this film highlights the daily realities of a nation plagued by inequality, and offers insight into the ways in which we can all better support those in need.
