Synopsis: This documentary-style film (video ethnography) features six young Canadian women who are in the process of transition, or who have already successfully left a life on the streets. Politicians, police, and front-line workers are also interviewed for their input in what helps facilitate exits to homelessness for young people. This research takes a critical look at the resilience factors in youth leaving the street, and examines the process of transition that successful youth have made.
