Synopsis

For some, the coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina, is a tourist playground. Beneath the surface however, is a rapidly increasing demand for resources available to those affected by poverty. The face of homelessness is changing rapidly. Former business owner Vince has slept under a stairwell in a parking garage for the past year. Currently sober, he’s determined to turn his life around. After aging out of foster care, Jerome followed in his mother’s footsteps by setting up a tent under a bridge, from which to attend college and perform as a female impersonator. Melody is an educated ex-Marine, who lost her local government job and now fights imminent foreclosure. In desperation, she considers sending away her two sons. Karen and feisty daughter Chemaiyah escaped domestic violence to move between church shelters every week, swallowing pride when belittled by the organizers. Meeting through common goals, we observe the lives of our characters organically interweave. They cast their votes but what can a new term in office really change? As the tough holiday season approaches, tensions and hopes run high. Several months later, has anyone found a solution to their predicament and is it sustainable? What does this growing trend mean for Middle America? Some make the transition to the fragile stability of employment and housing; others fall deeper through the cracks. With touches of dark humour and an intimate, honest style, “Something You Can Call Home” freshly explores what’s essential for physical and emotional survival, and evokes dialog long afterwards.
