Dan is a high school senior with a great life and a wonderful future ahead of him.  He has loving parents and is on track for a baseball scholarship.  He dreams that he may even get drafted right out of school.  His girlfriend is beautiful if a bit demanding.  All this is about to change.  His parents have lost their jobs and have been living on savings and part time work.  That just doesn't take care of all the bills and now they have lost their house.  Living with their uncle isn't working out so great so the family are forced to move to Dignityville -- the town's tent city.  With so many people losing their jobs, the town has designated land near the center of town for a tent city.  Can anything be worse than living in a homeless camp?
