| Messy Reality of a Street Kid's Life
Finding a safe place can be hard when you don't know where you belong.

This drama is hard to watch, but engaging. Vanessa Hudgens turns in a compelling performance as a feisty street kid who is searching for her identity amid hard choices.

Rosario Dawson, James Earl Jones and Brendan Fraser fully inhabit their roles.

The film addresses poverty, class, systemic racism, white privilege and the problems in the shelter system. Not a big film, but thought provoking.
