Christopher Street Pier in New York City has become a beacon for homeless queer and trans youth of colour, many of whom have been kicked out by their families. These young people forge bonds in the name of survival and self-preservation as part of a community that many choose to ignore. This documentary spends five years in the company of some of these young people including Casper, Desean and Krystal as they reach critical junctures in their lives 50 years after the riots at Stonewall.
