Based on Patricia Reilly Giff's book, Woods centers on 12-year-old Hollis Woods (Jodelle Ferland) who, after being abandoned as a baby, has bounced around the foster-care system until she meets a quirky retired art teacher Josie (Spacek) who understands her and gives her unconditional love. However, Josie's difficulty remembering things gets progressively worse, and Hollis becomes the caregiver.
Woodard will play the girl's more than patient social worker. Tupper will play a husband and father of Hollis' previous foster family who wanted to adopt her until tragedy struck.
