Synopsis

Friday’s Child is a crime and punishment story and a passionate portrait of youth set in Waco, Texas. The film’s exposition was inspired by an ongoing national malady: the rootlessness and impermanence experienced by many “aging out” of foster care at 18 years old. Without proper resources, education, nor solid relations, too many young adults go astray, becoming homeless, or worse, entangled with the law. This background for the character of Richie Wincott (played by Tye Sheridan and researched firsthand by the film’s creators) is the cornerstone of what I hoped would be a humane story about love, loss, wrongdoing, and redemption.
