Alicia is known as “Princess” to those who live on Skid Row, including her father who suffered a traumatic brain injury while in Iraq and now endures PTSD. Alicia is a gifted writer but ditches school and the social service employees trying to help her. With a stellar cast, first-rate writing and cinematography, Princess of the Row is a gritty and inspiring tale of a runaway foster child who will stop at nothing to live with the only family she knows.
