An Important piece of filmmaking
12 May 2014 | by (Long Beach CA) – See all my reviews

I was provided an opportunity to see this film before any of the sweetening had been done and in spite of that, I was still compelled by the story and found myself hooked right from the start.

To me, that is a true testament of a good story!

Even though the protagonist is revealed with more than enough detail to make me care about him, I found myself caring about him enough to want to know more.

The end is powerful!

I believe Ms. Howard has created something of value that brings attention to a problem in our inner cities.
