When the lives of hundreds of people abandoned on the streets of London during Covid are in jeopardy, a passionate group of volunteers decide to take action.
On 23rd March 2020, London’s bustling streets became deserted overnight. People had been ordered to “stay at home”. Everyone and everything had gone. Everyone apart from society’s most ostracised group: people affected by homelessness. The film gives a voice to those left on the streets at the worst possible moment. Seeing the desperate situation, the small community group Under One Sky started daily emergency response. Within weeks a handful of people grew into a movement with hundreds of brave Londoners coming together to support “the forgotten ones”. I'm Still Here shows what can be achieved through community, compassion and connection.
