One Dollar One Day is an entertaining and insightful docu-drama written, crewed, starring and co-edited by participants of the Phoenix Film Program, a film mentorship initiative for homeless youth created by Adam Greydon Reid. Taken from the participants’ real life experiences and feelings, the film portrays a day in the life a squeegee kid who offers friendship and solace to a self-absorbed suburbanite whose car (and life) breaks down on a city street corner. One Dollar One Day premiered at the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C. as part of the DC Shorts Film Festival.
