The film follows three youth from communities so different they hardly seem like neighboring suburbs. Yet we see how similar their struggles are and how they need coordinated and holistic support not just from their schools. The film illustrates the need for aligned work across sectors to ensure that a community’s young people are supported in and out of school from birth into the world of work.
