SYNOPSIS

Based on a true story, Miss Virginia stars Emmy-winner Uzo Aduba as a struggling 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. On October 18, the film will be released in select theaters and on video on demand.


 
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
