“A Box of Faith” After her mother dies and her dad is imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, 16-year-old Dior is forced to live on the streets. Ms. Ward, a social worker, makes it her personal mission to find the evading youth but everywhere she looks, Dior is always a step ahead. Through their cat-and-mouse game, they unexpectedly teach each other the meaning of love and acceptance. Dior believes that her antique writing box, left behind by her mother, grants her whatever she needs to survive on her own through a mystical connection with God.
