The film is from a true story. Sixteen-year old Agnes “Apple” Baily (Vanessa Hudgens) flees her abusive home and away from her drug addict mother (Rosario Dawson) to search for her father in the hopes of finding a better life.

At first, her father (Brendan Fraser) welcomes her to his home and new family. However, she finds herself returning to the streets when her father doesn’t understand her decision to not terminate the pregnancy.

With no hope for a family at either home, Apple tries to survive the tough life on her own. Soon a benevolent chaplain, Father McCarthy (James Earl Jones) offers her hope and comfort in her time of need. Father McCarthy provides her a place to stay at a homeless shelter for pregnant teens.

Apple must now find the strength to move on from her dark past and look to a bright and hopeful future.
