KNOW HOW is a film written and acted by foster care youth, ripped from the stories of their lives. Five youths’ worlds interweave as they confront loss, heartbreak, and growing up in this tale about transience and perseverance. Addie struggles to graduate from high school while her best friend Marie loses her grandmother. Megan copes with being taken from her abusive family and faces the harsh reality of living in a residential treatment center. All the while Eva works to be mother to her sister while their father falls deeper into a crack addiction. Austin is living on the street with his brother, barely able to feed himself. All of them must decide to survive or else fall victim to a broken system.
