Many in the documentary contribute the growing issue of homelessness to a lack of enforcement on drug use and and overall sentencing leniency in Seattle. Scenes of litter and individuals who need mental health treatment fill the screen.
As cities struggle with homelessness, billions of dollars across the nation are being pumped in to alleviate the problem and help people experiencing homelessness. Whether or not many of these programs are effective or are just allowing a cottage industry around homelessness to grow and thrive are still unknown.
