“She’s so tough, but she’s still a kid dealing with really adult problems. She’s trying to literally survive each day — making sure she has enough food to eat, that she has a place to sleep at night. But also, she’s a dreamer, and she wants something larger for herself and create a life that is more than just day-to-day.” -Katie Lynn Esswein

“Directed by LA-based artist Bart DeLorenzo, “Nomad Motel” depicts a “family consumed by California’s crippling housing crisis and the life of a ‘parachute kid,’ sent to live alone in America while his father remains in Hong Kong.” Featuring live music, the coming-of-age tale explores concepts of family, survival and home, while chronicling the lives of two determined teenagers.”
