| A juvenile murderer is sentenced to live with a family that has lost their son to gang violence.
This film is great. There is a social need for films like this. It ought to be shown in schools and be mandatory viewing as a method to show how precious a human life is. Too many young kids are killing other kids. If they'd see the aftermath of what they've done maybe they'd think twice.
