18-year-old Kaydee “Caine” Lawson lives a violent and unstable life on the streets of Watts, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. After being wounded in a carjacking, Caine’s friends try to warn him that if his life of crime and violence continues, he will either end up in prison or dead, but it fails to change his ways. Caine’s friend Ronnie finally breaks through to him by suggesting he move to Atlanta with her to start a new life. Caine hesitantly agrees, but quickly finds the dangers and complexities of his life on the streets are not easily left behind. Discussion with director Allen Hughes, moderated by VAFF Advisory Board Member Jason George
