The media often portrays squatters as freeloaders who contribute little to society. In this documentary, Richard Madeley goes beyond the headlines to find out the truth. He meets exasperated landlords whose properties are being occupied without permission and learns that some squatters are experts at exploiting the law, but also discovers others who are openly embraced and welcomed by their communities.
