Based on a true story, Miss Virginia stars Emmy-winner Uzo Aduba as an impoverished single mother who is losing her teenaged son to the rough streets of Washington, D.C. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she puts 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. This is the Moving Picture Institute’s first feature narrative film. It will release in 2019.

You speak up because what you think makes a difference. Yes, it’s romantic, but that doesn’t mean it’s not real, too.
— Virginia Walden Ford, executive producer
