Lily hasn’t seen her biological father in thirteen years, so on her sixteenth birthday she finally gets her wish to travel to Los Angeles to meet him. However, a series of comical mishaps cause her to reevaluate the importance of family and love when she decides to embark on her journey alone.

About the filmmaker:
Yesenia made ‘Adrift ’ as a student in the Real to Reel program at RAW Art Works, a youth arts organization based out of Lynn, Massachusetts. ‘Adrift ‘ is roughly based on personal life experiences. She graduated Lynn English High in spring 2009 and went on to study filmmaking in college.

Check out Raw Art Works, home of the Real to Reel Film School, where we believe that all kids should be seen and heard.
