Synopsis of film

From Doorways to Dignity is a story about living in the margins and in the under-culture of society where the American dream has failed. The documentary centers on four mesmeric homeless persons who organize their compatriots in a revolution against our nation's undignified treatment of the homeless. These citizens are the visionaries of the struggle to establish Dignity Village, not only as a legal place for homeless persons to find shelter, but also as a place to regain dignity. These tireless individuals, struggling against outrageous odds, are working to realize their vision of a self-empowered and self-governed tent city. It is a story about citizens coming together to do something for themselves -- this time they just happen to be homeless.
