Three older people with disabilities. Two stories about housing. Elizabeth Ore (age 65) and Corliss Rogers (age 86) are all fired up and won’t take it anymore. It rolled out of their toilet and into their home. The memory of the mess it made keeps them going as they fight the landlord who first allowed their apartment to become uninhabitable and then moved to evict them. Ed Dudkin (age 93) reports on his journey after he left his home, his neighborhood and everything familiar to move 400 miles. He wants companionship and support as he looks for a place to “hang his bones.” Hosted and produced by Shelley Berman. Corliss Rogers and Elizabeth Ore’s story reported and produced by Sheela Gunn-Cushman.
