I work with homeless people every day. This film tells their story like it is -- tough, dirty, gritty. But there is nothing depressing about this family's story. They have what it takes to overcome difficult circumstances -- love for each other. Angela almost gives up at one point. When that happens in reality, we see the lives of everyone involved fall apart. Frank and Angela have made some poor choices in life; but their choice to stay with each other wins out. Again, in real life, these are the families that find a way out of homelessness and poverty. These are the children that learn perseverence. The petty crimes committed by Frank and Angela are absolutely wrong, but true to life. Loved the acting, the visuals. Wonderful film.
