HIS NAME IS RAY puts a face on the growing homelessness and opioid crises. Special presentations at TIFF and HOT DOCS.

Ray once had everything. A job that he loved with the Coast Guard. The father to a family. But his addiction took it all away. Now, the former sailor lives on the streets of Toronto with an entire population that seems to have just fallen through the cracks.

With a remarkably compassionate and intimate lens, the audience follows Ray on his precarious journey to get off the streets and back on the water, where—in the ultimate achievement of the oblivion he craves—he could just sail away from it all.
