Dignity Harbor

Season 2 Episode 20 | 59m 55s

The story of a year's time at Dignity Harbor; one of three homeless encampments along the Mississippi River in the downtown area of St. Louis, north of the Arch. They must survive living in the cold of the harsh winter, but as temperatures drop and tempers rise, the camp members are challenged with living together. All of this while the city looms over, waiting for a chance to move them out.
