“The Homestretch” follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate and build a future.
Each of these smart, ambitious teenagers – Roque, Kasey and Anthony – will surprise, inspire and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness as they work to complete their education while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age.
