Urchin is a 2007 film directed by John Harlacher and starring Sebastian Montoya, Rick Poli, Larry Swansen, Donald Silva, and Barbara King. The screenplay concerns a homeless boy living in a New York City underground mole people community called Scum-City.
Urchin is the story of a child who lives in Scum City. When the Old Man came to Scum City, a homeless camp in the Manhattan tunnels, his story seemed wild. He was from a kingdom deep within the earth, he said, and was sent to find the five nobles who got lost up here.
