Storyline

Johannes, son of a schizophrenic mother who frequently avoids her meds, transfers to an elite high school to help his career as a poet (and remains the only family member willing to live with his mom). His school reputation soon becomes wrongfully tarnished by a former classmate. Now aggressively blackballed, he also falls victim to plagiarism by a visiting graduate music producer. Furthering his troubles, ne'er-do-well pals from the streets get him trouble with the law and lend no support as Johannes runs afoul of a hot-tempered street hustler. When you hit bottom, it's time to climb and determine who your true friends are. Written by statmanjeff

Examples of real life problems we can all get stuck
17 December 2014 | by TarassuSee all my reviews

Even thou movie was not based on true story it could totally be it as things that happened in the movie do happen in real life on daily basis. You can always choose how to respond. Main actor was a strong and persistent individual. So go and watch what did he do and what happens next. It is a movie but you can learn from those mistakes. Suitable for everybody from 12 to seniors. I give it almost a perfect score. I did notice that some things were too short (good movie is always too short) comparing to real life. More details means that runtime would extend way over 2 hours and that is not what everybody wants. Also no tears. That is also nice.
