Ten years in the making, Us & Them is the story of Krista’s experience learning about the lives of four chronically homeless people. She teaches her charismatic friends about the First Nations Medicine Wheel in hopes of improving their lives. When one tragically dies, she seeks out the counsel of addictions specialist Dr. Gabor Maté, who forces Krista to confront her own motivations. In the end, they come to understand there is no difference between them.
