About "30 Seconds Away: Breaking the Cycle"
Milwaukee's homelessness problem is examined by no less an authority than former federal agent and Marquette graduate Faith Kohler in 30 SECONDS AWAY, a vital documentary examination of this issue from all sides of the argument. Spending time with those struggling to survive on the streets as well as with the justice system and Milwaukee police stuck between trying to enforce the law and caring for these forgotten members of society (through means such as our local Homeless Outreach Team), Kohler paints a powerful and empathetic portrait of an ever-growing problem with no easy solutions.
