FOSTER BOY

Directed by Youssef Delara/IL/114 min. Michael Trainer (Matthew Modine) , a highly successful corporate lawyer, is ordered by a judge (Lou Gossett, Jr.) to represent pro bono a black kid, Jamal (Shane Paul McGhie) who is suing a for-profit foster care agency for years of abuse in the corrupt foster care system. Initially, he sees Jamal as a kid off the streets looking to grab a piece of corporate profits. But, when Jamal refuses to settle the case for any amount of money, Michael begins his representation in earnest. As their work together reveals the horrifying depth of the corruption and abuse of the for-profit foster care agency, Michael is transformed from cynical skeptic to fierce warrior in the pursuit of justice. This film is produced and presented by Shaquille O’Neal.
