Families are invited to join the world premiere screening of Wanted, a short film created by Cincinnati native Nathan Jacobson, and filmed in West Chester. Two days before he ages out of the foster system, Luke finds himself in a new home, faced with the love of a family, and the trauma of his past. “Wanted” takes a look at family — at what it really means to be part of one. It explores that desire innate in all of us — the desire to be loved, to belong, to be wanted.
Two other short films, Roses and Firefly, each featuring heroic young people overcoming adversity, will also be screened. The world premieres take place on Friday, Feb. 20, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Tri-County Baptist Church (8195 Beckett Road, West Chester).
