A Home in Common

After the success of his first collaborative short documentary, Mary Rose, Director and Dreamer's Edge founder Jacob Boelman, embarked on what ended up being a seven-year journey, the making of Paxson: A Home in Common. Please check out the trailer and consider helping us share this story with the rest of the world. 

Dark Concrete Wall


Experience a home of six men with disabilities and the veteran staff who care for them. The difficulties of everyday living are heightened after the converging of two serious events. During the time that management is undergoing a turbulent change in leadership, one of the clients starts to experience heightened episodes that put the emotional and physical safety of the home at risk.
