12-year old at risk inner city boys from Baltimore's ghettos attend 7th grade in Kenya
These brave and appealing children leave the only world they know to reinvent themselves with only their own shaky courage to remind them of their life back in the rough streets of Baltimore. The heart and soul each of the young characters brings to their life-changing adventure is breathtaking. Each Baraka boy knocked me out by his charm, tenacity and strength. The film introduced me to adolescents I would never have known and now will remember forever. I'll root for the success of each of these troubled boys and their dysfunctional but loving families. Audiences must see the triumphs of spiritual Devon, charismatic Richard, sweet Romesh and smart, hardheaded Montrey.
