My childhood friend Lydia is in the process of campaigning to raise the money needed to make her movie, Sunny Lane. Based on Lydia’s life history, Sunny Lane follows two cousins, Eden and Izzie, as they navigate the foster care system while planning their initial escape. A shared diary chronicles their adventures, exposing violence and neglect. Told with child-like playfulness and whimsey, theirs is a story of hope and perseverance in the face of incomprehensible abuse. You can follow Eden and Izzie’s diary online.
I am so moved by Lydia’s advocation on behalf of foster children – she is so open and generous with her encouragement and support. If you feel compelled to act, you can donate on the film’s website or on the Indiegogo campaign site.
