To raise financing for his film, Matty Rich went on a local radio station in Brooklyn, asking for pledges. The next day about 50 people showed up and he raised $77,000 in the space of 20 minutes. See more »
Principal character's parents' argument clearly indicates that the film was "flipped" to achieve proper eye-line match. Unfortunately, a large wound on the mother's face (from earlier abuse) changes from one side of her face to the other. See more »

This film has many flaws, but many strengths as well. Many luminaries in the film industry have openly criticized this film. I feel much of this is unjustified, because a lot was done on a miniscule budget here. There is also a great performance in George T. Odom's portrayal of the fed up father who has been beaten down by racism. Anyone who has grown up in a low income household can relate to that situation. The ending is sad and real. Also especially noteworthy is Harold Wheeler's excellent and despondent musical score.
