It would be impossible to fully understand the life and emotions of a child going through the foster care system, but this short narrative film portrays that saga in a poetic light, with brushes of fear, anger, sadness, and a tiny bit of hope.

Jojo spent ten years in California’s foster care system, eventually aging out. Defying the odds, she went on to attend college and become an advocate for other children who, like herself, find themselves in a bureaucratic system. She currently works helping foster youth successfully transition out of the foster care system.
