Storyline

In "Be the Man," 17-year-old Damien never realized that the only man he's ever looked up to might not be the best example of what it means to be a man. Damien's verbally abusive father has taught him to be strong, but that tough shell means trouble when Damien starts to treat his girlfriend the same way he's seen his parents interact. "Be the Man" dramatically explores a young man's coming of age in a harsh, sometimes cruel world. Written by Anonymous
