“Parker delves into a largely unseen section of Los Angeles and the travails of three women, cast with their families out of an apartment complex deemed unsafe in 2004 by the government due to the local gang activity.  The tactic chosen by our city to diffuse this gang activity: demolish the complex and force all the families to find new residences.

As we begin a new presidency and hear calls for reborn political and community activity, this is the sort of film that must be seen so we can gain an understanding of the problems being confronted.  But the film is no mere propaganda or liberal plea.  In her locked off shots and long takes, Parker imparts the dignity of the women and the range of their difficulties, as they stave off homelessness and confront the mindless violence that wracks their neighborhood.  Superb filmmaking, the kind that raises the viewer’s consciousness and should be viewed by all Angeleños.” - Adam Hyman, Director LA Filmforum
