SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A new documentary, "Tony - the Movie," seeks answers to San Diego's homeless crisis by searching beyond state and county lines. 

The film features Tony Rodriguez of San Diego, who became homeless after losing his job as a waiter. Rodriguez has little family left and lives with depression. Despite describing himself as shy, Rodriguez agreed to do the film in order to help the thousands of people trying to escape homelessness.

The film's creator, Dennis Stein, hopes to get the documentary in front of every local leader and future candidates.

The documentary will be screened Tuesday in Pacific Beach, a joint effort by the Pacific Beach United Methodist Church and Discover Pacific Beach:
