Dear Thalia (trailer)

Living in paradise with the cost of living and the burden of acquiring a home (by rent or ownership), it's very common to have people working multiple jobs or living with their parents. Add in the loss of a job, a medical situation/emergency, or any other variable - could potentially have you sleeping on a friend's couch/or worse, on the streets. See what it's like to live on a sidewalk in Kakaako.
