Great visuals,  stirring musical score; this film aims to awaken viewers into a call to action with regard this pressing problem of homelessness amongst students not only in the US but also globally. The issue hits close to home as it's also become a perennial problem here in my homeland. The stories of Anthony, Roque and Kasey are a representation of these homeless youth who still aims to dream high and look forward to the future with a positive and open mind. Of the three stories, I was especially drawn to Anthony's story since it also showed his determination to change himself and to develop and hone his musical and creative talents. He was honest enough to divulge that he has been involved in robberies before to survive but clearly, viewers can see that he has a great potential to succeed.This is a very bittersweet documentary with a very strong message for everyone to take notice and to act on the problem promptly before things go out of hand.  This is definitely a must-watch!
