MEDFORD, Ore--- On Tuesday, Tinseltown will show "Friday's Child", a movie aimed at raising awareness for teens that age out of foster care, and can't afford to live. 

Around 20 thousand youth age out of the foster care system each year. 

Facing the adult world can be sudden and intense for these youth. 

Facing instant adulthood, often without a diploma, job experience, or a place to live can lead to extreme actions. 

"Friday's Child" follows the story of a boy in this exact situation. He is unable to afford adulthood straight out of foster care, so he turns to petty crime to survive. 

The showing is put on by the partnership of OnBuzz Media, and Ticket to Dream. The goal is to inspire action to improve the futures of foster youth aging out of care. 

Here in Medford, Hearts with a Mission is attempting to combat the issue locally. They are building a new facility that will house young teens. It will open up space in the old building, in order to house the transitional ages. 

The movie will show at 7:30 p.m. You can buy a ticket here. You can view the full trailer here
