Follows a teenage graffiti artist who ran away from home and holds up an unwary MTA worker in a robbery gone right that would change their lives forever.
A brilliant first feature from Aristotle Torres. The film stars Asante Blackk as Kadir, who was 20 (but plays 16 extremely well) during filming, shows a maturity for handling a demanding (physically and emotionally) role. He is the light representing so many black teenagers trying desperately to find their way. Another notable is the seasoned character actor Luis Guzman (246 films including TRAFFIC, BOOGIE NIGHTS, PUNCH DRUNK LOVE). Guzman, who is a great comedic actor, brings a well-rounded humanity to the film as Luis, the one who transforms Kadir.
