Made with depth and compassion, West 47th Street is an intimate cinéma vérité portrait of four people struggling to recover from serious mental illness, a topic rife with stereotypes and misunderstanding. They've come to Fountain House, a renowned rehabilitation center in New York City's Hell's Kitchen. The film follows its subjects over three years as they deal with issues with courage and humor.
