| This is how it can happen
I saw most of this TV movie late one night, didn't even know the title till just now. This film always seems to come back to me now and then and it'll movie will make you think twice the next time you step over a homeless person or walk fast past them on the street.

The harrowing story of how it can happen to a "normal" family - much like the one you might live next door to. Step by step, event by event you can see how the homeless you hear about in statistics in the news actually come to be. I really felt the growing panic in the characters, especially the father (Jeff Daniels) who is desparately trying to gather resources to keep his faily housed and fed. Really a sad but important movie to see. I'm glad it got made and could provoke thought in at least this viewer.
