The UK has had a steady increase in the number of evictions since the year 2000 records. According to the Ministry of Justice 37,739 private and public sector tenants in 2013 saw their homes repossessed by court bailiffs. Behind each figure, a whole set of events have taken place leaving many people and families completely broken. The story of Francesca is one of these stories that largely takes place within social tenancies. It is a reflection on what it is to be a social tenant, and how becoming homeless can happen in a short space of time.
In 2011, Andrea went to San Vito (CA), Monte Porceddus Valley, located in southeast Sardinia (Italy), by bike for wwoofing (WWOOF: World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. Linking volunteers with organic farms and growers). Two years later, he is still there with his wife Sara and five-month-old daughter, Nadia. He sold his bike to buy a horse, quit his job as a contract manager for a company in Reggio Emilia (Italy), met his actual wife and a year ago started his new life as shepherd. Now they have 18 sheep, 2 goats, 3 horses, some hens, cats and dogs.
