Karen is a beautiful young woman with a dark past, but she's got potential and she knows it. Fresh out of prison, she finds herself on the streets with a burning desire to turn her life around but no one to call for help. Eventually she finds a haven at a shelter for women like herself. With the support of her new community of friends, Karen begins the journey of reconnecting with her estranged mother and her young daughter, and she is soon propelled to face the most difficult truths of her life. But she's determined to never give up.
Here I Am would be suitable for middle and senior secondary students of Health and Personal Development/Life Skills, SOSE/HSIE, Family Studies, Indigenous Studies, Gender Studies, Psychology, Philosophy and Ethics and Film and Media Studies. It would be an excellent film to show young men some of the difficulties and pressures faced by women who have become separated and estranged from their own children and families for whatever reasons. It tells a story of struggle and determination, of 'moving on' and making choices about what really matters.
