Skidrow Marathon

About the film

A criminal court judge starts a running club on L.A.’s notorious skid row. The club's members, comprised of homeless drug addicts, a recovering single mom and a murderer, consider themselves among those least likely to succeed. As they train together to run marathons, they learn to dream big as they are re-acquainted with their own dignity.
