The Line 22 is the only overnight bus route in Silicon Valley. During the day, it is a regular city bus. But by night, it transforms into an unofficial shelter for the homeless. Commonly referred to as "Hotel 22," the bus has become a mobile testament to the challenges of finding housing in one of the richest districts in theworld. When evening falls, weary riders begin their Sisyphean journey between opposite ends of the bus route. Tensions run high when people are forced to commit the most private act - sleep - in the most public of spaces.
