Hooked tells the story of Jack: a homeless teenage prostitute with a smart mouth, impulsive tendencies and a bad boy swagger. He battles through a violent world of reckless johns desperately seeking a better life with his boyfriend. When a closeted older client enters the picture, Jack’s challenges mount as he is taken from the homeless shelters of Manhattan to the shiny but deceptive dream of a better life in Miami. The story depicts a harsh and tantalizing world where even good intentions can cause ruinous results.
