Sugar Movie About Homeless Youth Releases Nationwide September 6, 2013


This is a compensated post

I live just a 15 minute drive from Venice Beach, California and I'm a parent of four teens -- so this film's premise that focuses on young homeless kids in Southern California is almost too close to home for comfort.

Venice Beach, California,
Which is precisely why I think this story needs to be told since there are way too many teenagers and 20-somethings wandering homeless on the streets of Southern California and in other U.S. cities today.

Based on true events, The Sugar Film is the story of a 20 year-old woman with a troubled past trying to make it in life on the streets of Venice Beach. Sugar suffers from PTSD after tragically losing her entire family in a deadly car crash. She survives with her group of electic outcast friends on the sidewalks and in the alley shadows of Venice Beach trying to find her way in the world.

Watch this clip that captures the film's essence

From executive producer Elliott Broidy and written and directed by Rotimi Rainwater, who was formerly homeless himself, the film  Sugar releases nationwide on September 6th, 2013.
