Lone was made to raise awareness of the work we do to help those who are homeless, rough sleeping, in crisis or at risk of homelessness. It tells the story of Gemma, a young woman who becomes homeless when the relationships with the people closest to her break down. Whilst living on the streets Gemma is told about Emmanuel House from where she is able to take her first steps out of homelessness.
