The Edge makes MTV documentary about homelessness

The Break offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to completely transform the lives they have into the lives they want

U2 rocker The Edge has made a documentary for MTV about homeless children in America.

MTV describes The Break as “the personal vision of U2’s world-renowned guitarist, The Edge, who believes that everyone deserves a chance at a decent life”.

The Edge (50) also wrote music for the show which will premiere on March 2 on MTV in the US. The programme introduces viewers to three homeless young people, Ava, Nancy and Rob and shows homeless advocate, Anne Mahlum, offering them a helping hand to turn their lives around.

The Edge's documentary reveals there are over 1.5 million homeless youth living on the streets and in shelters in America. "Despite the stereotypes, many of them are not addicts, hardened criminals or mentally ill," said programme bosses. "Every day, strangers turn a blind eye, telling themselves that the problems are just too big to fix. But what if they aren't? The Break offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to completely transform the lives they have into the lives they want."
