It is relatively good.. gives a glimpse into the life of an young high- school couple in the ghetto.. the hard life, where gun violence is common. It is difficult to succeed in such an environment.. Some do try hard.. and succeed with the help of mentors and parents!

It really needs subtitles.. Hard to hear and understand at times..

It's a tough film to watch even though it's a story as old as the ages....the broken teenage unwed mother. Daje shows the same ignorance and uncaring attitude I did when I was 16 - especially when I had every dysfunctional adult breathing down my neck telling me how to be. You lose focus as a kid and for a daughter you ask "where's daddy" - single parents can't do it alone period.

I didn't feel we had a happy ending in the film, and I believe a 10 year follow up on this story will be horrific. Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows indeed.

This is a very honest look at parts of society we choose to neglect. The bad choices and the consequences of those bad choices. But, the film also reminds you that even those who are less fortunate than you want better for their children. I also commend the people who put their heart and energy in saving at risk youth.
