Short Term 12
Passionate and tough, Grace is a 20-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. A formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge, Grace shares her life and work with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker, Mason.
When Jayden, a gifted but troubled teenage girl with whom Grace has a charged connection, arrives at the facility, Grace’s own difficult past, and the surprising future that suddenly presents itself, throw her into unforeseen confusion.
Grace comes to find, in both her work and the new teenager in her care, surprising sources of redemption.
