Yes, it’s that magical time of the year again. Christmas is coming when we all go into our wallets and splurge like the world might end tomorrow, with little thought of what else we might do with the money.
This documentary portrays the front-line street workers who serve the needy under the umbrella of the Salvation Army. One of the world’s largest social agencies, the Army is a religious institution that serves the practical needs of people first, believing that religion is of no use to anyone hungry, homeless and hopeless.
Join filmmaker Rosemary House as she peers into the hearts and minds of people on both sides of the street – those who help and those who need help. Shot in the streets of Toronto at Christmastime, the film chronicles the small hopes, and tiny victories of a life lived below the poverty line and the daily rewards for those who work to serve others.
