synopsis
Set on the streets of Los Angeles at night, Disco'd explores the lives of the homeless as they struggle with displacement. A couple in an encampment prepares to move for city sanitation. An elderly woman is frustrated with obtaining housing assistance. A recycler contemplates his existence. An ailing senior describes a life of heroin addiction as he tries to maintain civility. When morning comes, the homeless encampment must move for city sanitation, and the elderly woman faces the realities of homeless housing assistance.
