Depicting the lives of children in the U.S. foster care system, this animated documentary combines audio from live interviews with hi-def animation. The youth stories are fragmented, much like the lives themselves, but come together over the course of the film to tell a story of perseverance & survival.
As the journey begins, a young mother dies in a car accident, a teenage runaway finds solace in solitary confinement, and a father forgets to report his 12 year old daughter missing. The children are sent away, they live with grandma, move in with strangers, and take to the crime-infested streets of urban America. They are abused, institutionalized & branded as â€œfoster kids.â€ Yanked from the families they care about, they are forced from one place to another until they can no longer remember where theyâ€™ve come from. Yet they are resilient. They find comfort in school, religion, a good meal and a warm bed. Ultimately they realize it is their own decisions that will make or break them.
