This story of Jonathon, a vibrant 18-year-old sinking under the weight of his lot in life, distills the trials of a segment of queer youth in America. Homeless, bullied, and failing out of high school, Jonathan seems about to find stability when a GLBT host program matches him with a middle-class family. Struggling to adjust after a lifetime of homophobia and poverty, he’s ultimately redeemed by the love of his chosen family and friends.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Steve Mendelsohn, co-president of NewFest and deputy director of The Trevor Project.
