The forest is a place of refuge, but it’s hard to escape the past.

As the homeless flee the gentrifying cities of the American West and take refuge in nearby forests, the residents of a small, mountain town in Colorado, led by a progressive minister who was himself once homeless, must learn to live with the strangers in their midst and the limitations of the American dream.

A feature-length documentary film produced and written by Christian Hammons. Directed by Eric Coombs Esmail & Christian Hammons. Coming Fall 2021.
