Storyline

Navigating the transition from adolescence to adulthood is challenging for even the most mature and privileged youth. For three young people in New York and Los Angeles, making the transition to independent living is considerably more difficult as they "age out" of the foster care system and suddenly discover, for the first time, that they're on their own.

Aging Out
25 March 2012 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Documentary about older kids trying to get off the Foster Care system, you know, because they're 18 right? and realizing, that, you know, once you do leave, well, who's going to support you? We follow 3 kids, David, Risa, and Daniella, as they struggle with the system. All three have very different stories. David is the loser of the bunch, no future, always getting into trouble, big dreams etc. Daniella is a Mom with a somewhat loser boyfriend, struggling to gain an education while making it on her own, while Risa is the smartest of the bunch, very smart, educated, has the future in front of her, and doesn't need the foster care system anymore. With films like this of course, you pick favourites to succeed, and watch with amazement those who don't, but it does raise questions about how much support, either through the foster parents, the gummint, or through other means should the kids have to make it on their own after such a tumultuous childhood. No real answers, and get ready for a real downer of an ending.
