Barbie Carter spent a decade on the merciless streets of Los Angeles’ notorious Skid Row, constantly watching her back and earning the nickname “Gangster Granni.” After finally securing housing, she begins navigating the mundane tasks of buying bedding and setting up bank accounts. She revels in the small luxuries of having her own apartment and enjoying things most of us take for granted, like taking baths whenever she wants. After Skid Row is an intimate and compelling portrait of perseverance that demystifies and personalizes America’s homelessness crisis.
