Featured Video Play Icon

Like many people trying to survive the pandemic, Lydia’s income was cut. After being evicted for her inability to pay rent, Lydia attempts to stay with friends but finds that living in her car is her only choice. Lydia struggles to figure out what to do next and stay safe while keeping a sense of normalcy working as a rideshare driver in Los Angeles. Finding a safe place to park at night proves challenging until Lydia meets an unexpected ally who shows her kindness. Mobile is a short film based on true life events telling the story of a growing population forced into mobile homelessness. Your voice can help end homelessness. If we do not fix the affordable housing crisis, homelessness will continue to get worse.
