Abstract:

Many at-risk youths see negative lifestyles such as hustling drugs as the only real alternatives open to them. Introspective in tone, this documentary presents a different point of view through the emotional journey of at-risk young black men attending an intensive retreat led by older black men whose life experiences qualify them as powerful mentors for positive personal change. Overall, the participants come away with a stronger sense of themselves, a new bond of brotherhood as a group, and a feeling of connection with elders who have faced similar circumstances and succeeded in turning their lives around.
