Plot & Details

Dominic Savage is a filmmaker known for exploring the subject of social inequity in contemporary England. In this film focusing on the country's homelessness problem Savage follows the lives of several characters who are struggling to survive in a shelter for those with no place to live and no one to turn to. Michelle is a single mother who is pregnant and desperate to escape her husband Robert - a violent ex-convict who was only recently released from prison. Yemi is a journalist who, along with his terrified wife, was recently forced to flee from Nigeria in fear of his life. Meanwhile, wealthy, forty year-old father-to-be Mark (Colin Firth) feels profound guilt over his good fortune in life, and selflessly determines to give back to the community by becoming a street worker.
