A challenge to the received ideas about homeless people and homelessness. It is 1987 and the setting Inner London. Young single people, many new to the city, often find themselves with no job, little money, no home. Glad, Anna, Jeanette and Greta try to find solutions to problems which often seem insurmountable. Above all, where to sleep?

‘…..this is Britain, not Little House on the Prairie…’
