Synopsis

Unsettled is the story of two women and their journey from life without a home to the fight to keep their dreams and hopes alive in a city that is tacitly pushing them out. While Naila Goodwin-Early desperately fights the system to put her family in permanent housing, Nkechi Feaster battles to keep the home and the small foothold she’s earned. Through their personal journeys both push the powers that be for more support for Washington, DC’s unsettled population. This is a story of living both in and on the edge of homelessness.
