Out Of The Woods - From Lakeland and Beyond

Brandt Russo, upon hearing about homeless people being harassed and arrested for hanging around a healing revival in Lakeland, Fl in 2008, decided to travel and see for himself. Within three days of witnessing the injustices, directly serving the homeless community bordering the church offering the revival, he was arrested by the church staff for trespassing and thrown into jail, facing criminal charges. This is the story about the 31 days that changed his life, and the lives of many others in the process. Produced by "Stray Dog Films" and Bob Wilkinson Music by The Homeless Gospel Choir
