A documentary by Ditte Haarløv Johnsen. Homeless is Johnsen's second documentary and focuses on three portraits of - Kenny Emil, Nuka and Norto, whom were all born and raised on Grønland and have ended up homeless on the streets of Copenhagen. The three are on a daily basis fighting for their existence, both with each other and within a social system which is often more alienating than supportive. 

Ditte Haarløv Johnsen has let the social counselors and case workers be peripheral noise in the film and given Kenny Emil, Nuka and Norto voices so that they can be heard. During the film, Johnsen herself moved in with the homeless.
