      PG Six is an overqualified, underemployed, transgender journalist with unique insight into one of New Zealand's most pressing social problems: homelessness. Six herself was homeless for many years.

      PG Mickey, a former drug dealer and addict, is now in his 60s. He prefers to be called Mickey the Rat, and, until recently, he lived in a cemetery. But, after landing up in a court with a difference, the trajectory of his life dramatically changed for the better.

      PG Nicola is an Outreach worker at Auckland City Mission, an organisation which helps those in desperate need. She works at the coalface of homelessness, venturing onto the streets to engage with the city's most vulnerable people.

      PG Gloria has been homeless since she got out of jail seven months ago. Now, unable to find a job or housing, she lives in a park and sells sex to survive.

      PG Homeless people's brushes with the law often land them in jail. But is there a more humane way to deal with the problem? Judge Tony FitzGerald thinks so. He presides over the Court of New Beginnings, or as its more commonly known, The Homeless Court.

      PG Keith is a synthetic cannabis addict. He's been on and off the streets for 14 years. We follow his struggle to find a habitable place to stay. At his wits' end he seeks help from Lifewise, a community organisation which helps the homeless.

      PG Can you be homeless and care for a pet? To find out, Six follows Ben, a young man who has a dog called Buddy.

      PG Series Final: Just when all seems to be going well, Six is burgled. This puts the production of the K Road Chronicle at risk. While Six struggles with this setback, she's also trying to figure out why Ben is resisting being housed.
