This engaging documentary explores the unique work of two incredibly dedicated nurses working in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Canada's poorest postal code. Through trial and error Evanna Brennan and Susan Giles have discovered innovative strategies in order to effectively care for this unique population. Over the last 15 years, they have become pioneers in providing street-level home care nursing to an essentially homeless population surviving the effects of drug addiction, mental illness and HIV.

To perform their job effectively, Evanna and Susan find themselves providing nursing care in hotel rooms, the local bar, street corners and back alleys to ensure their patients survive one more day despite little measurements of success, inconsistent support from their colleagues and numerous obstacles along the way. This explorative documentary takes the viewer right into the harsh streets of the Downtown Eastside and provides a raw glimpse of the amazing dedication and extraordinary approach they have developed in order to reach out to this fragile population.
