Bombay Beach, a barren place where dead fish are a 7 year old 's friends and abandoned houses are their playground. The documentary Bombay Beach, by Alma Har’el, shows 3 very distinct characters with many flaws. Some of their flaws are forgivable while some of them are not.

Bombay beach is a place filled with many odd people with many different problems and life stories, but due to their circumstances, some of their flaws are forgivable and some of them are
