    Examines the plight of homeless children through interviews with more than a dozen youngsters living on the streets of California's Bay Area. The youngsters' stories of family rejection, the daily struggle for food and shelter, police harassment, and the dangers of drugs, prostitution and pregnancy lend a compelling human dimension to the anonymous, panhandling children whom most of us as passersby do our best to ignore.
