In the Woods is the story of a homeless community living in the woods, fighting a lawsuit against eviction, searching for affordable housing in America.
When the township of Lakewood, NJ files a lawsuit against the homeless for trespassing, a Lawyer takes up their case and counter sues the County for their right to camp on public land until an affordable alternative for those who can not afford the rising cost of housing is found. Set against the backdrop of an economic recession and record rates of joblessness, In the Woods tells the story of a community who finds a way to survive by returning to simpler way of life. With interviews and observational footage shot over several years, the story of Tent City is told through the interweaving of personal narratives with the ongoing litigation.
