When writing a feature about murals painted under the pavements of Manhattam by homeless artists, journalist Alan Emmins was challenged by a homeless dancer to try homelessness himself to understand what he was writing about. He took up the challenge. His diary about the people he met reveals an invisible world, full of surprises.
