Grace is a 20-something supervisor at Short Term 12, a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. She is passionate about her work and takes great care of the kids, though she struggles with her own troubled past. When Jayden, a gifted, restless, teenager arrives at the facility, Grace finds herself no longer able to ignore the difficulties of her own childhood – and it puts the delicate balance of her life and work at risk. She must find her way through a crisis that both pushes her to the edge and allows her to discover unexpected glimmers of humor and hope.
