The Area

The Area is a five year odyssey of a South Side Chicago neighborhood, where more than 400 African American families are being displaced by a multi-billion dollar freight company. 

The documentary film follows homeowner-turned-activist Deborah Payne, as she vows to be "the last house standing," and the Row Row Boys, teen friends who must start a new life across gang lines.
