Garfield Park, Chicago: where the speed of gentrification accelerates and property taxes rise…
Hoody and D have been in the neighborhood for years. Czar and April have saved for years to buy their first home. As Hoody struggles to cover his property tax bill and Czar struggles to join the community, both struggle to maintain separate identities and accept the changes surrounding them. Broken Fences examines culture, race and socio-economics in the modern American Village with humor, humanity and dignity.
