From Moving Picture Institute:
The Moving Picture Institute Original film “Miss Virginia” is based on the true story of Virginia Walden Ford’s efforts to rally parents, community leaders, and politicians on behalf of thousands of underserved, neglected, and forgotten children in Washington, DC. In this inspiring profile, research fellow Dr. Tiffany Dunston, PhD, explains how Virginia’s work secured her a brighter future.
“Miss Virginia” stars Emmy® winner Uzo Aduba as a struggling single mother who is losing her fifteen-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, DC. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she places him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him. Attacked and threatened by those who don’t want change—from corrupt politicians to the local drug lord—Virginia must discover depths of strength she never knew she had.
