In the United States, 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ. (In Toronto, the estimate is anywhere from 20 to 40 percent.) With a fervent sense of humanity, Instagram star Max Emerson (aka maxisms on Instagram) dives head first into the subject in his poignant, yet hopeful, debut feature.

Jack has just turned 18. He is as smart as he is reckless and impulsive. He and his boyfriend Tom have run away from home and rely on sex work to get by. Their bond is strong and unfailing, but Jack yearns for a new life for the two of them. With increasingly high stakes and the illusion of financial security, Jack navigates the sexual underworld of both New York City and Miami. The consequences are explosive.

Showing profound empathy for its characters and their struggles, Hooked is a complicated, timely exploration of issues that plague our LGBTQ youth.
