SYNOPSIS: William has a good job, money, food, clothes and a roof over his head; he can take care of himself and can't imagine it being otherwise. Maddie, who had a job, a house, a car, and a cat, is homeless; her job and her money are gone and she knows all too well how easy it is to end up on the street. She sits quietly at the entrance to a metro station in Washington, D.C. seeking spare change and is invisible to most who pass by on their way into or out of the station, including William – until one day... Off the Grid addresses living without a net in America and our responsibility to one another.
