ABOUT EDITH CAN SHOOT THINGS AND HIT THEM
After being all but abandoned by their widower father, Filipino-American teenagers Edith and Kenny form a latchkey family that becomes all the more unconventional when Kenny develops romantic feelings for his classmate, Benji. The strength of their fragile bond is challenged as the adult world conspires to pull the three apart.
Featuring the acting talents of Sara Porkalob (TH), Jose Abaoag (TH '99), and Tim Smith-Stewart (TH '10).
