When Maggie's life intersects with Alysha, a teen mom, whose daughter was taken away from her by the state because they are living on the streets, Maggie feels the call to action and goes on a hunger fast to bring attention to the issue. As Maggie continues on her journey the lives of many are deeply affected. REAL DOCUMENTARY INTERVIEWS with PDX HOMELESS are woven with the narrative threads of Maggie's protest fast, her family's attempts to understand her, Alysha's growth, and the bill '4 Walls and A Roof'; and all are brought together in a moving conclusion.
