When a recently widowed mother becomes houseless, she convinces her 8-year-old daughter that they are only camping for fun while working to get them off of the streets.
Having lost her apartment during the COVID-19 crunch, Danny roller skates around a neighbourhood of housing projects, fast-food joints and quasi-suburban homes trying to rustle enough gig economy scraps to pay rent and security on a new apartment. A visit to her presumptive — and understanding — landlord leaves her until the end of the day to secure the $200 she’s short. As the film progresses, we see the frustrations and the continued resourcefulness in which Danny handles her situation. This is a vibrant and inspiring story to emerge from COVID. Poignant and realistic are words that best describe the film.
