Season 30: Episode 24

In the 2012 documentary Poor Kids (available above), FRONTLINE spent months following four young children growing up against the backdrop of their families’ struggles against financial ruin. On Nov. 22, 2017, FRONTLINE returns to the Quad Cities to revisit the families at the heart of Poor Kids to see what their lives are like now, offering a powerful, firsthand look at what poverty means to children and the country. Startling and intimate, the film is an indelible portrait of the realities of growing up poor in America, told by children in three families over the course of half a decade.
