On the street your only home is the song in your heart.
Synopsis:
Sam is a driven, homeless teenager who attends the most dangerous school in the city. Metal detectors and backpack checks each day guarantee a high level of anxiety. Her once privileged alcoholic mother Lila is unreliable but full of love. Their close bond helps them make it through many of life’s ‘out of their control’ challenges. Eviction is a recurring theme in their life. Lila’s drinking gets her fired AGAIN, and they resort to BUSKING (singing on the street for money) to survive.They retreat to Far Rockaway beach for the summer, finding shelter under the boardwalk. When Sam’s overworked Principal comes bearing exciting news -- that Sam has been accepted into a prestigious performing arts school -- Sam knows that a good education is her ticket out. She becomes more determined than ever to achieve a better life. The new charter school provides its own set of challenges. Sam is recognized as an amazing singer but fitting in with the ‘normal kids’ and hiding her homelessness is trickier than expected. She is most comfortable expressing her feelings through music. We see the stark contrast between the warm luxury of the TriBeCa moms as they get their children ready for school and Sam’s life navigating the shelter system and city streets.
