Editorial Reviews

Last year, Carissa Phelps graduated with both a law degree and an MBA from UCLA. But when she was 12, she was homeless and forced into prostitution in Fresno. This documentary short takes us on Carissa's inspirational journey.

"Carissa" has won jury prizes at seven film festivals and was featured in USA Today and on Good Morning America. The film is also Executive Produced by Davis Guggenheim, the Academy Award-winning director of "An Inconvenient Truth" and Jamie McCourt, Owner and President of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and sponsored by Virgin Mobile and the Los Angeles Dodgers Dream Foundation.

The DVD comes with over 30 minutes of special features, including interviews with key figures from Carissa's life, deleted scenes and director's commentary.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
