NO CHILD is about growing up, and the power of growing together. It explores our inner passions, becoming inspired to be responsible, and the ability in us all to overcome our disadvantages... and our demons.

*WORLD PREMIERE* for NO CHILD held with 4 screenings at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival (JDIFF) in Dubuque, IA, April 23 - 26, 2015. Only 35 films of nearly 400 entries were selected.

No Child stars child actor Timmy Richardson who plays the supporting role of "Justice" in Tyler Perry's TV drama, If Loving You is Wrong. Timmy is scheduled to film his 4th season.
Will Windsor (Will Williams), a recent college graduate, waits on returns from interviews for a "real" corporate job. He bides his time self-medicating with alcohol and supporting the habit with his earnings as a tutor.
After a typical night of binge drinking, Will receives his newest assignment and soon finds himself the halfhearted tutor of an African-American boy, Thomas Daniels (Timmy Richardson of Tyler Perry's, If Loving You Is Wrong). The subject is Reading and Comprehension. The author: Hemingway. And Thomas needs to "get it" to pass the 3rd grade No-Child-Left-Behind standardized test.
As Will rekindles his love of literature, and as he sees Thomas making the connections that make reading and understanding magical, he discovers an opportunity for redemption. Will he open his heart and let inspiration pull him up? Or cut and run at first opportunity and grow further into a life of despondency?
