Twenty 12-year-old black boys from one of the most violent ghettos in Baltimore, Maryland, are taken 10,000 miles away to an experimental boarding school in rural Kenya, to try to take advantage of the educational opportunities they can't get in their own country. Written by
This documentary had potential to be really great. Instead, it comes across and incomplete and mediocre. The story focuses on four of the boys who go to the school in Africa. Not much is shared with the viewer about the school. It'd have been nice to know who the counselors were, why they were there and some more information about the school. More history about the four boys chosen would have been good too. The documentary follows the boys for over a year, but it the documentary is just over an hour and a half. Such a long time is covered a in a very short time. The documentary provides little information about the challenges the boys face as well. It left me wanting to know more and this is something a documentary should not do.
