GoldDerby is a short-term foster-care centre for troubled teenagers, presided over by young supervisors — and secret couple — Grace (Larson) and Mason (Gallagher Jr.). The arrival of suicidal Jayden (Dever) forces Grace to process her own past and present — chiefly the baby she is covertly carrying.
Short Term 12 is a miracle of a movie. Beautifully written and perfectly played, all of human life is here: the good, the bad, the messy and the uplifting.
