A (short) documentary about tiny houses, and people who find home in less than 400 square feet. Can living small go big?
What is home? And how do we find it? In this 2014 feature documentary, one couple's attempt to build a 'tiny house' with no construction experience raises questions about sustainability, good design and the changing American Dream.
