This documentary tells the story of the making of Emmaus Community in Perth, WA – an extraordinary place created by an extraordinary man – Alan Archer.

After singing and performing on stage in London to signing up with a record label whose clients included Prince and Michael Jackson, Alan's life was transformed by a powerful experience in a Los Angeles church. Giving up a wild life of parties, drinking and performing, Al returned to Australia to work in a 500 bed homeless men's shelter in Kings Cross and later from one small house in Queens Park, Perth, managed to create a community of fifteen houses for over sixty adults who live with mental illness.

Psychiatrists and community nurses have spoken about how Emmaus reduces hospitalisation and dependency on the mental health system. Residents speak about how it's changed their lives.

In our world of ever increasing isolation and mental health challenges, Emmaus Community is a timely reminder of how communities can change lives.
