About the Project

22 years ago, Robert was struck by a freight train that took his leg and caused a rift in his family. Now chronically homeless, Robert has bounced from LA's Skid Row, to the courthouse steps in Long Beach, California. Follow Robert's journey as he tries to reconnect with his family and the world around him.

The documentary explores the circumstances leading up to his accident and the resources available to help someone get back on track after life takes an unexpected turn.
