Grammy-winning Fugee Pras Michel explores the troubling reality of homelessness by shedding his million dollar duds and living in the five block radius of Los Angeles known as "Skid Row" - an area where poverty runs notoriously rampant - in this documentary co-directed by Marshall Tyler, Ross Clarke, and Niva Dorell. For nine days Michel trades his stardom for the anonymous life of a typical homeless man, struggling to find food and shelter in a bit to better understand the arduous plight of the less fortunate. As the days progress and Michel gradually gets to know the men, women, and children who call the sidewalks their home, tragic and heartfelt stories of survival give a face to the folks who many simply do their best to ignore. Meanwhile, Michel's on-camera experiences are interjected with various statistics about the homeless situation - including the fact that Los Angeles has the largest homeless population in the entire United States. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
