After taking three homeless students off the streets of LA and into her care, a young music teacher must overcome her reckless tendencies when she is evicted, and forced to survive. Flora Simmons, a young musician, escapes a haunting past. Her life scars are not evidence of Imperfection; they are evidence of healing. She's been living in Los Angeles for a year.

Great Indie Film!
4 October 2017 | by hello-35732See all my reviews

It's an emotional story about homeless teenagers and the problems they face. The cinematography is amazing, the songs are great and the narrative is compelling; it pulls you right in. It's very inspiring and great to see films with substance instead of special effects coming out. Filmmaking and storytelling as it should be. Definitely recommend this!
