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>

Good movie!
19 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This was a really good movie! Rent it, buy it, view it! The characters are true to life, I think I've met some of them before. Geoffrey Rhue does a superb job. This is a strong beginning for this writer/director's career. Check it out
