This season, Community Cinema celebrates 10 years of uniting people through independent film. Available in more than 75 cities nationwide, Community Cinema presents free screenings and discussions around the Emmy Award-winning PBS documentary series Independent Lens. By igniting conversations around issues that affect us all, Community Cinema creates real and lasting change — both at home and around the world.
Three homeless teens brave Chicago winters, high school pressures, and life alone on the streets to build a brighter future. Against the odds, they recover from the trauma of abandonment to create new, surprising definitions of home.
