Storyline

Bruce Franks Jr. is a 34-year-old battle rapper, Ferguson activist and state representative from St. Louis, Missouri. Known as Superman to his constituents, he is a political figure the likes of which you've never seen - full of contradictions and deep insights, who has overcome unspeakable loss to become one of the most exciting and unapologetic young leaders in the country. This short verité documentary follows Bruce at a critical juncture in his life, when he is forced to deal with the mental trauma he's been carrying for the nearly 30 years since his 9-year-old brother was shot and killed in front of him, in order to find peace and truly fulfill his destiny as a leader for his community.

Real.
10 February 2020 | by atraindischertSee all my reviews

This film tugs at your heartstrings as it dives into downtown St. Louis as well as St. Louis county revealing real issues within the community. Corruption, social injustice, and innocent lives being taken away is just the start. Bruce fought from the lowest of points in order to make a change, but in an unconventional way...from the inside. Most people complain about the change but he put himself in a place to actually do it. Hearing and watching his journey is breathtaking. Great film.
