In this fascinating documentary, director Marc Singer offers a first hand account of what life is like for a community living underneath the streets of Manhattan in abandoned train tunnels. Despite rodents, bad air and the constant darkness, some individuals have made the tunnels their home for as many as 20 years, explaining that it's safer than the street or homeless shelters. Residents tap into city lines for electricity and water, and scavenge building materials and food above ground. As they go about their daily business of cooking, cleaning, socializing and selling objects in the street, we get the sense that these resourceful people aren't homeless, but the new urban homesteaders.
