New York's International Film Festival opens this week, with a line-up of films coming from Japan to India and Brazil.

One of the films to be shown has been written and acted out entirely by young people, who grew up in foster care in the United States.

Know-How is a real life American drama played out by actors who went through foster care, and who turned their experiences into an inspirational film.
