This is a short documentary film about a group of homeless mothers who reclaimed a vacant home in Oakland, California to provide safe housing for their children and to draw attention to the wider housing crisis. The house was owned by Wedgewood Incorporated, a real estate company that specializes in flipping “distressed” properties. In a city where the average rent is close to $3,000 per month and thousands of people are living on the streets, the occupation quickly grew into a movement for housing justice. This film tells the story of the 50 days of struggle at 2928 Magnolia street from occupation to eviction.
