A brave movie- a classic! The film took 4 years to make, and it shows. It was shown to schools all over the world and aired on PBS. it's a must see!
The film follows the lives of 6 teens from South Central Los Angeles, as they struggle to make a future for themselves. The story lines are delicately interwoven with the stage play Watts Side Story that they are mounting. The story of the two inspirational teachers are very touching.

You can find the film on Netflix.
