Fictional story of two rough sleepers and the lack of welfare provision

Two rough sleepers ‘on the edge’ meet and start a relationship that gives them confidence to rebuild their lives and re-engage with society.

This short fictional film tells a very contemporary story of survival in a divided Britain that is shrinking its welfare system as the gap between rich an poor widens and the flood waters rise. Filmed on the riverbank in York by Cathy Denford, this optimistic story suggests alternative lifestyles and ways out of economic/political chaos. A good discussion starter.
