Synopsis

A moving portrait of the UK housing crisis, told through the experience of one family. Filmed over a year, Daisy-May is both director and daughter as her and her family fight to retain their dignity whilst they wait to be rehoused by the council. This is an extraordinary story of courage and determination, a story of family bonds which is both heart-breaking and life affirming, combining moments of tremendous tenderness and grit with some unexpected humour. HALF WAY offers an alternative narrative from the current exhausted media coverage of the housing crisis; it does not, and cannot, shy away from the harsh actualities of homelessness.
