ALONE TOGETHER tells the story of sisters Jess and Cara, ages 15 and 16, who have recently run away from an unpredictable and increasingly frightening home-life. Facing challenges beyond any they anticipated, the girls begin to realize that a life on the streets may not be a long-term solution, but the question remains, which environment poses the greater threat – the one they left behind, or the one that lies ahead? When they cross paths with Simon, an 18 year old who seems to know how street-life works, the questions surrounding where to go and who to trust grow all the more complex. Filled with tension and razor sharp dialogue, ALONE TOGETHER is a moving portrait of the difficult choices youth in crisis are often presented with.
