Video Description

The Homestretch

The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school and build a future. Each of these smart, ambitious youths — Roque, Kasey, and Anthony — will surprise, inspire, and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness. As they work to complete their education and recover from a life of abandonment, they create new, surprising definitions of home.
