International PREMIERE


Part of the American Dreams Strand


Debut writer-director Stephanie Turner also stars in this impressively staged indie film, playing single mother Lisa Wade. Lisa must move in with her father-in-law after the death of her husband. Struggling to find work, Lisa takes a job caring for Justine (Daisy Prescott), a young but opinionated girl with spina bifida. An unlikely pair, they become friends and help each other in many ways, but their relationship is challenged when Justine’s well-to-do parents object to Justine playing with Lisa’s biracial children.
