Lighthouse is a gritty, yet uplifting and ultimately redemptive coming-of-age tale told with the heart and passion that could only come from a true story. Lighthouse follows the journey of two Jewish teens, abandoned by their parents and left homeless in Portland, Maine, as they fight their way from the streets to successful adulthood. Brought up in the Lighthouse Shelter (part of the Preble Street Resource Center) by a system straining to meet the needs of so many with so few resources, the brothers embark on impressive life journeys: one a doctor, the other the filmmaker. Through sheer determination, and a masterful handle on the social support system, these two boys prove that it indeed takes a village to raise a child.
