Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Above all else, documentarian Lech Kowalski built his reputation on a desire and tendency to explore the gritty underbelly of urban life - a thematic preoccupation particularly evident via this film. In it, Kowalski zeros in on a group of homeless New Yorkers who frequent a local soup kitchen. When the municipality threatens to shut down the establishment - effectively putting an end to one of the subjects' main sources of food - they take up the cause and prepare to fight City Hall.
