No Way Home: Canada's Street Kids

A harrowing examination of Canada's street youth and shelter system. Hana Gartner traces the journey of three kids who ran away at age 13 to the gritty, violent reality of the streets. Learn how they navigate through the dark corners of society: panhandling, abusing drugs and selling their bodies. The documentary offers a rare glimpse of the country's homeless youth — about 75,000 of them — through the eyes of the kids, the Toronto street mom "Angel", and the unusual shelter she operates.
