ABOUT THE FILM
Even at a young age, Christina was no stranger to violence. She attended a public school that housed a daycare and a police sub-station on its campus. By the time she graduated high school, some friends had died; others were in jail.
But it was not until Christina moved back to Southern California to attend college that her life forever changed. One night, at a college party, someone pulled out a gun.
The bullet and its aftermath reaffirmed Christina’s path to help people in need. She moved to New York to become a social worker. Along the way, she also found love.
