We’re now just days away from the biggest football game of the year. As thousands of wealthy tourists enjoy the splendors of Super Bowl City — and as San Francisco’s tent cities try to stand their ground — Truly CA presents a portrait on Bay Area homelessness with Roz and Joshua.

This short documentary by Charlene Music profiles Roz, a woman living out of her truck in the South Bay. As she dreams of regaining custody of her 12-year-old son, Joshua, Roz works for the Downtown Streets Team. The non-profit connects homeless or near-homeless volunteers with beautification projects in Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale and San Rafael, and will continue its work long after Coldplay and Beyonce pack their bags.
