A film written and acted by foster care youth ripped from the stories of their lives. Five youth’s worlds interweave as they confront loss, heartbreak, and come of age in this tale about transience and perseverance.
KNOW HOW is not a documentary nor is it fiction. It’s a hybrid approach for using film to create social change. Instead of professional screenwriters and actors, these true stories are written and performed by a cast of ordinary foster care youth – and their performances are powerful, moving, and eye-opening. Know How is a musical that brings authentic voices and unseen stories to the screen.
