Love and Drugs on the Street: Girls Sleeping Rough
Eye-opening stories of the daily lives of women sleeping rough on Brightons streets.
Part 1: Survival
Filmed in Brighton and Hove, which has seen the UKs biggest increase in homelessness over the past year, we meet Paige, who is 21 and sleeps in a graveyard; Tanya, who is 7 months pregnant and sleeps rough with her partner; and Jo-Jo, who is 21, smoking spice and sleeping in shop doorways.
Part 2: Mothers and Lovers
Paige has had a fresh start in a hostel but her daughter is being put up for adoption, while Maria has succumbed to the grip of heroin addiction, having had two children removed from her care. With around three-quarters of mothers sleeping on the streets having had kids taken away, can they break the vicious cycle?
Part 3: Break Up
The eye-opening daily life story of women sleeping rough on Brightons streets continues. As winter sets in Paige tries to put street life behind her, while Maria and Tony bed down with a single homeless woman.
