Defying stereotypes about drug use, sex work, and homelessness in Toronto

Marty, Greg, and Roxanne have all survived decades of life on the street in Toronto’s Regent Park area. Now, drawing from their own experiences, they work in public health, hoping to ease the paths of others while struggling to maintain their newly found stability. Filmed over five years, this intimate portrait is by turns moving, funny, and surprising.
