An emotional, heart-wrenching tale about the powerful bond between father and daughter, embodying the message that family is always worth fighting for, 'Princess of the Row' is a heart-wrenching and life-affirming film from Max Carlson and Shawn Austin. Together they wrote and produced the award-winning film, with Max Carlson directing. The inspiring story tells the tale of a runaway foster child who will stop at nothing to live with the only family she knows: her father… a homeless mentally ill veteran who lives on the streets of LA’s skid row. Ruth Copland talks to the film-makers about what inspired them to tell this story, how you take a story from an idea to a fully realised film, and why they became film-makers in the first place.
