Film Summary:

The Heart of Foster Care Unlocked features foster parents who speak on their experience with their foster child/children. The subjects of the documentary discuss how sometimes the foster homes that the children are placed in aren’t always caring and the foster care system’s mission isn’t applied to equitably to all the children in the system.
