*Exclusive SA season*

Passionate and tough, Grace is a 20-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers in this hotly anticipated US indie film. A formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge, Grace shares her life and work with her boyfriend and co-worker, Mason. When a gifted but troubled girl arrives at the facility, Grace’s own difficult past and the surprising future that suddenly presents itself, throw her into unforeseen confusion. Grace comes to find - in both her work and the new teenager in her care - surprising sources of redemption. Winner of three awards and a standing ovation at Locarno Film Festival, this is a very special film not to be missed.
