"The Wall" looks back at the saga of the Native American homeless camp in Minneapolis the last half of 2018. The film documents the growth of the camp, the community response, the internal conflicts, and the eventual transfer of residents to shelter. It also captures the stories of the residents, who share their journeys to the camp, their lives there, and their hopes for a better future. Specifically, the film follows one couple from August to December, who open up about the trials of their addiction, their relationship, and their hopes to get their kids back. Finally, by way of intimate conversations with the campers, this documentary sheds light on the causes for homelessness and points the way to how to solve it.
