Storyline

Des is an eleven year old kid who has had a really bad deal in life. Crime and mischief are the main staples of his life and he and his friends cruise around the city and do things like vandalize, steal, light fires, and mug people. He thinks that he is untouchable because he cannot be charged until he is twelve. Cory becomes Des' best friend and they carry on like nothing can stop them; however, Des ends up at an assessment centre for troubled youths and may begin a new life without crime.

Superbly directed exceptionally acted.
20 March 2001 | by (Burbank California) – See all my reviews

This is a superbly directed and exceptionally well acted film. Though the subject matter is dark, it is tense, emotionally affecting and thought provoking. Child crime has never been dealt with in such a realistic manner outside of moralistic documentaries. This is an unblinking depiction of two boys denied what we might consider any vestige of childhood
