An awesome movie, a real eye opener of what life on the street may be like
14 May 2002 | by shaqrachSee all my reviews

This movie was a real eye opener for myself. I watched this movie without high expectations. By the end of it I was "Wow, what have I been missing." This was the movie that really got me introduced to Indie Film. Now, I watch more independent material than I do "Hollywood block busters". The acting in this movie was award winning in every aspect. I actually work in a video store, and I do not hesitate to recommend this movie to everyone. An all round well done movie.
