The 20th Chicago Irish Film Festival will be showcasing a powerful documentary about hope and community in the face of the ever-growing issue of homelessness in Ireland.

This doc will be showcased alongside two 1-minute shorts, No Dogs and Silent Plight. Academy Award-winning filmmaker and producer, Jim Sheridan, will present his film followed by a Q&A.
