A teenage girl prepares for a school concert but is thwarted by her family’s precarious housing situation, and the more she plays, the more trouble she gets herself and her family into.
The Mission is a collaboration between Tom Haines and B-Reel Films, and was completed in 2018. Shot in El Segundo, Los Angeles, it tackles the subject of Hidden Homelessness that is pervasive in LA and much of North America. The film was made in association with the Harmony Project, a Los Angeles music charity.
