There is an army in the city's mean streets. Its foe is poverty and human misery. Salvation is about front-line workers serving the needy under the umbrella of the Salvation Army, offering a glimpse into the hearts and minds of people on both sides of the street. Shot in downtown Toronto at Christmastime, this moving documentary chronicles the small hopes and tiny victories of life lived in the shadows of destitution in the inner city.
