East Coast Premiere

High school can be tough under any circumstances as each generation works to carve out a promising future through education. But what if there is the added burden of having no consistent place to call home? This powerful film follows three homeless teens — Kasey, Anthony and Roque — as they share their struggles and victories while navigating their way through the Chicago Public School system and clearing the challenging hurdles of life. – AP
