The son of an incarcerated father and a single mother in the inner city struggles with mature decisions as he is faced with peer pressure, violence, and trauma., 22 January 2014
Author: Amrit Sahni from United States

The writer/director did a fantastic job with this film. Born and raised in Richmond himself, he really brought out the crucial elements of the city, and particularly of Church Hill. Yes, the film is about an inner city black kid, but a viewer of any culture, age, or ethnicity will be able to relate to the themes of this story. That is what makes this film so beautiful. Triston's struggle is dark and dramatic at times, but balanced with light moments that will have you laughing. The plot is multi-layered, as it features the many obstacles of this young boy including his attempt to maintain his reputation in clashing social groups, his relationship with his incarcerated father and his hard- working mother,and a trauma that most children his age do not have to face. Definitely recommend it to any audience.
