This event will focus on the theme of: Trauma and Recovery

This film centers around Grace (Brie Larson) who is one of the young counselors at Short Term 12, a foster care facility for at risk teenagers. Along with Mason (John Gallagher Jr.), with whom she’s in a relationship, they look after these kids who have come from troubled pasts. There’s Marcus (Keith Stanfield) who’s about to turn 18 and will have to leave the facility, Sammy (Alex Calloway) who’s going through a deep psychological trauma, and a new teenage girl named Jayden (Kaitlyn Dever) who seems to be deeply scarred. Grace begins to connect with her and realizes they have come from a similar past. In addition to helping these kids Grace and Mason have to deal with their own scars in life if they want their relationship to work.
(Written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, 2013)
