Storyline

Ty, Hector, and Bao are close friends in a tough section of Boston, where they're called "the PG-13 crew." They're 14, decent kids with few skills who've bailed out of school. A small gang of older tough guys, led by Marcus and Tommy, menace them, and when the PG-13s fight back and rob one of the gang, Marcus and Tommy vow to kill them. They seek protection from Derick, a drug dealer, who agrees to help if they'll sell drugs. Meanwhile, Ty is recruited to work at a community center by J.J., its quiet leader. Ty and his friends are in a squeeze: surrounded by violence, drugs, and no opportunities, is there any way out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

great tale of crime, friendship, and courage under adverse conditions.
21 June 1999 | by xpandSee all my reviews

I have seen many movies in my time, but not many have truly impressed me like this film. I urge everyone to view this if you haven't already. This is a powerful story of Anytown USA, and the trials and life of mis-guided youth. This film rates a 9 from xpand. Have a great day, and support independant films.
