Poor Kids is an powerful, intimate portrait of America's economic crisis as seen through the eyes of three young girls growing up against the backdrop of their families' struggles against financial ruin in Quad Cities, a manufacturing town in the nation's breadbasket, along the border of Iowa and Illinois. At a time when one in five American kids lives below the poverty line, Poor Kids is an unflinching and revealing exploration of what poverty means to children, and to the country's future. 

Critical Acclaim for Poor Kids:
"Every so often the images in a TV show stay with you after the show ends. That happens with “Poor Kids,” a new “Frontline” special that looks at poverty through the eyes of three preteen girls who are living in it… 'Frontline,' wisely, doesn’t sermonize. It turns on the camera, lets the children talk and now can only hope someone is listening." - David Hinckley, NY Daily News
