Seattle street corners are filled with panhandlers and homeless citizens, holding signs, asking for any help they can get. As you avoid eye contact on an I-5 off ramp with a man asking for spare change, have you ever thought about his background? Have you ever asked about his story? How about the woman in a slightly covered doorway along your walk to the coffee shop?
This documentary delves into the lives of people we see everyday. Find out about their culture and history. Seek answers to why they do it and how they survive in a city with inhospitable weather conditions 70% of the year. Cardboard is a striking, in-depth conversation with people stranded on the streets, their stories and the steps that placed them where they are.
