Short Term 12 (2013)

Grace (Brie Larson), a supervisor at a state-run foster care facility for at-risk teens, finds her world upended upon the arrival of Jayden (Kaitlyn Dever), a troubled sixteen-year-old whose experiences are hauntingly reminiscent of Grace's own difficult past. Determined to help Jayden at any cost, while also on the cusp of making a life-changing decision with her longtime boyfriend and co-worker Mason (John Gallagher, Jr), Grace must navigate a trecherous path before finding redemption - and real happiness - in unexpected places. A Traction Media production.
