Yelling to the Sky  USA / 2010 / 96 mins

17-year-old Sweetness O'Hara (Zoe Kravitz) has arrived at the first of several life changing forks in the road. Being the daughter of mixed race parents in a less than tolerant community, she lives with an alcoholic and intermittently abusive father, and a mother suffering from a mental illness, the exact nature of which Sweetness is unsure. Her protective older sister, Ola, is pregnant, with no support from the child's father. Yet, with all this chaos enveloping her, Sweetness takes her life into her own hands in a neighborhood where to become an adult, you first must survive as a teenager.
