Language / Country : English / United States
The inspiring tale of a runaway foster child who will stop at nothing to live with the only family she knows: her homeless, mentally-ill veteran father who lives on the streets of LA’s skid row.
Max Carlson’s Princess of the Row is a poignant and emotional father-daughter drama explored through the lens of homelessness and poverty. Tayler Buck’s performance is a stand-out; she plays Alicia Willis, a young girl surviving on the streets with her mentally ill veteran father, Beaumont ‘Bo’ Willis (Edi Gathegi). This honest and unflinching film uses compelling storytelling to highlight issues with the American justice system, and the lack of care shown towards veterans who are suffering from PTSD.
