With 2021 ending next week, many people are taking this time for self-reflection and looking towards our future.

The film “C’mon C’mon,” which is in theaters now and will be available on demand beginning Thursday, profiles children expressing how they feel about their future. 

Joaquin Phoenix plays a radio reporter named Johnny, traveling to four cities around the country.

Detroit, Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York. He interviews kids in schools, at home, and with friends.

We asked our listeners to pose the question at the center of the movie to the young ones in their life, “How do you see your future?”

We hear some of those responses.
