From Doorways to Dignity takes you on a journey to understanding homelessness from a point of view unlike any other ever shown on screen. From hiding in the doorways of America to re-inventing democracy through the birth of an urban tent city called Dignity Village. It is a story about homeless citizens coming together to do something for themselves, to create a community based on love and respect. From Doorways to Dignity is a film about standing up and being heard, even after you have lost everything. A group of homeless visionaries stepped out of the doorways with nothing but their shopping carts, and set out to build a home and a Village, grabbing hold of their own American dream and not letting go.
