Filmed over three years, Sky Blossom is a raw, uplifting window into 24.5 million children and millennials stepping forward as frontline heroes. Caring for family members with tough medical conditions, they stay at home doing things often seen only in hospitals. They are cheerleaders, work part time, and go to college--but also live double lives--quietly growing up as America’s next greatest generation. Sponsored by John C. Larson
