Follow One Family’s Resolve Through Poverty, Loss, Grief… Filmed over a five-year period… for 4 generations, the Collins family was trapped in urban poverty, depending upon welfare and living in one of the oldest and most dangerous public housing projects in the USA – Chicago’s Henry Horner Homes.

Yet, unlike tens of thousands in their situation, they found the community support structures – and internal spirit – to strengthen their family and transcend the economic and social conditions of their lives.

Legacy is a story about a family finding the strength and courage to transform their lives. No longer dependent on fate, but rather motivated by their own spirit of self-determination, they are able to utilize key support structures.

Directed by Tod Lending.
