For the formerly homeless women at the 8th Street Recovery Center in Washington DC, the arts don’t have much meaning in their day-to-day lives. Recovering from abuse and drug addiction, these women are perfect illustrations of the ease at which vulnerable women can slip through the cracks. But for Thom Workman, an acting instructor, the arts hold the key to helping them each overcome the traumas of the past. Together, they work to craft and stage a play based on their true-to-life experiences, which will be performed at a special event at the world-famous Kennedy Center. Using their untapped artistic talents, these women take a leap of faith to grow and move on from the pitfalls of their previous lives and step on to the stage in front of a sold-out crowd. Revealing both the struggle of homelessness and the power of the arts, filmmaker Nicole Boxer asks the question that if doctors and police officers can save lives, why can’t art?
