Aging Out

2004 NR

This gritty documentary from filmmakers Roger Weisberg and Vanessa Roth offers an unflinching look at America's foster care system as seen through the eyes of three adolescents preparing to exit the program. Released into the unfamiliar landscape of adulthood with no occupational skills, little money and no idea what lies ahead, these self-reliant teens endure homelessness, imprisonment and drug addiction before taking control of their lives.
