The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and build a future. Each of these smart, ambitious teenagersKasey, Anthony and Roquewill surprise, inspire, and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness, as they work to complete their education while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age.
Through haunting images, intimate scenes and first-person narratives, these teens take us on their journeys of struggle and triumph. As their stories unfold, the film connects us deeply with larger policy issues of juvenile justice, immigration, foster care and LGBTQIA rights.
