Homestretch (NR, 2014, 90 minutes) — The Homestretch follows three homeless teens in Chicago as they fight to stay in school , graduate, and build a future. Through haunting images, intimate scenes, and first-person narratives, the teens take us on their journeys of struggle and triumph. As their stories unfold, the film connects us to larger issues of poverty, race, juvenile justice, immigration, foster care and LGBT rights.
