Australian filmmaker Jeremy Beasley tells the story of four individuals in Portland, Oregon (where else?) who decide to leave the life of debt, mortgages, and too much stuff behind and build their own tiny houses. In this romanticized, crowd-funded film, what comes to light is that the process of taking on the project and changing their relationships with their homes changes each of them in a more profound way than they ever expected. Each of them comes to the conclusion that building these homes is hard, and probably not worth it. One young couple, Mitchell Mast and Nikki Codding, finds their relationship threatened by the process, while Ben Campbell, whose father died while he was in college, discovered the layers of grief he still carried, processing them through the building process. This is made even more poignant by the fact that his inheritance from his father is the reason Ben could afford to build the tiny house at all. Karin Parramore, an acupuncturist in her early 50’s, wanted the experience of being able to live as a gypsy. In real life, however, she finds this prospect terrifying, even as she mourns the suicide of her partner of 10 years who died while she was building her home.
