Pug, a wisecracking 13 year old living on a dangerous Westside block, has one goal in mind: to join The Twelve O'Clock Boys; the notorious urban dirt-bike gang of Baltimore. Converging from all parts of the inner city, they invade the streets and clash with police, who are forbidden to chase the bikes for fear of endangering the public. When Pug's older brother dies suddenly, he looks to the pack for mentorship, spurred by their dangerous lifestyle. Pug's story is coupled with unprecedented, action-packed coverage of the riders in their element. The film presents the pivotal years of change in a boy's life growing up in one of the most dangerous and economically depressed cities in the US.Written by
I'm sorry to say it but:This little boy is so mean (cussing every 1 out, kicking pit bulls,hitting little kids)! But then when they showed his home environment-that explained some of it.He has a talent for riding the dirt bikes,and wants to join that bike group, it's a outlet for him to get away from his life (which I can see a pretty rough one) I just wish they wouldn't ride their bikes in the streets and get chased by the police. Maybe they can build a track or something for them.Maybe some club can be created. Something needs to be done to keep them off the main streets.I understand the police trying to keep them and pedestrians and others safe.
