SPECIAL SCREENING OF 'Foster Boy: the movie'
Join Wayfarer Theaters for a special screening of Foster Boy and a discussion with writer, producer, and attorney Jay Paul Deratany.
$5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Families Helping Families Chicagoland, which supports families and foster children in need and/or crisis in Lake and Cook Counties.
A lawyer finds himself at the center of a trial in which a for-profit foster care agency puts a known sex offender into the same foster home as his young client Jamal, which leads to catastrophic results. The film is based on several of Jay’s actual foster care cases.
Free popcorn with every ticket sold!
“We are thrilled to be showing Foster Boy, especially with April being National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Sadly, Jamal’s story is not unique. Too many children are abused and neglected in the for-profit foster care system.”
Writer and Producer, Jay Paul Deratany
