Narrated by Catherine Keener, LOST ANGELS: Skid Row Is My Home takes an uncompromising yet life-affirming look at the lives of eight remarkable individuals--people who have found a way to make a life for themselves within the community of homelessness. The film shows how their descent into society's basement has been exacerbated by the forces of gentrification and the increasing criminalization of homeless people, while exposing the draconian changes to the mental health care system that have brought us here.

With the support of a vast array of advocates, especially the services of Lamp Community, the mission featured in the Jamie Foxx/ Robert Downey Jr. film The Soloist, many residents of Skid Row have found a way to stick together and fight back. Directed by Thomas Napper, LOST ANGELS demonstrates how proactive approaches to homelessness--most specifically that of providing housing--are helping many to recover from mental illness and substance abuse and to find stability. For many, Skid Row is, perhaps improbably, the last place to find refuge and build a life of meaning...proving that sometimes home is where the help is.
