This is a moving story about a group of homeless New Yorkers who set out to renovate an abandoned tenement building. Helped by Habitat for Humanity, including Jimmy Carter, inexperienced people become proficient carpenters and tenant-owners. This group of ethnically diverse people overcomes bureaucracy, skepticism and lack of money to attain a decent, affordable place to live. Filmed over a three-year period, it follows their struggle to turn a collective dream into a reality. Their saga can be a model for successful replicable restoration and community efforts.
