Skid Row is a 50-square block area in downtown Los Angeles where an average of 90,000 homeless and transient people live on any given night. More than just a place -- it's a way of life, a mind set, the last resort for those who have given up on society and, in many cases, themselves.

In the feature documentary SKID ROW, Pras Michel -- one third of the successful hip-hop band The Fugees -- lives on the streets of Skid Row for 9 straight days and nights as a homeless person. The entire time he and his crew are undercover, using surveillance cameras.

His journey is a difficult one, riddled with hunger, exposure to the elements, criminals, drugs and danger. It is also life-changing... as Pras learns not only how to fend for himself, but discovers the dark, very human and, at times, humorous underbelly of Los Angeles.

SKID ROW, available on DVD February 26th, at
