Storyline

Ty, Hector, and Bao are close friends in a tough section of Boston, where they're called "the PG-13 crew." They're 14, decent kids with few skills who've bailed out of school. A small gang of older tough guys, led by Marcus and Tommy, menace them, and when the PG-13s fight back and rob one of the gang, Marcus and Tommy vow to kill them. They seek protection from Derick, a drug dealer, who agrees to help if they'll sell drugs. Meanwhile, Ty is recruited to work at a community center by J.J., its quiet leader. Ty and his friends are in a squeeze: surrounded by violence, drugs, and no opportunities, is there any way out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Brilliant liitle known film
17 June 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Squeeze is one of the most brilliant urban films I've ever seen that doesn't have an abduance of violence. Tyrone Burton (who was 14 at the time) gives an Oscar worthy performace as Tyson a young guy who becomes a victim of the ghetto. If you've never seen this film check it out.
