Information about the film
Blood and Glory Film || Runtime 12 minutes
Blood and Glory is a drama about the friendship between two homeless veterans living on the streets of Los Angeles. Jackie is a dreamer and a hustler who is trying to get her life back on track. She also takes care of her battle buddy Rosa, who suffers from debilitating PTSD. The day that Jackie finally gets a job interview, she wakes up with a super heavy period. Without money for pads or tampons, Jackie has to figure out how to get through the day without letting her blood stain her clothes or her dignity.
