Watch Joe the King
- 1 hr 33 min
Joe Henry's home life is more than dysfunctional. His father is a violent alcoholic, and his mother is too occupied with protecting herself and her teenage sons to care for the day-to-day needs around the house. Thinking he can help the money problems at home, Joe takes an after-school job at a restaurant. This only offers him more temptation to find quick solutions to his family's long-term concerns. And despite the well-meaning concern from a school counselor, his life and his home relationships only worsen. Joe's later efforts as a petty thief heartbreakingly allow a judge to decide where and how Joe will spend his future.
