ABOUT:
After a school fight lands 17-year old Daje Shelton in a court-supervised alternative high school, she's determined to turn things around and make a better future for herself in her rough St. Louis neighborhood. But focusing on school is tough as she loses multiple friends to gun violence, falls in love for the first time, and becomes pregnant with a boy, Ahkeem, just as Ferguson erupts a few miles down the road. Trying to navigate her way through a world that seems determined to hold her back, Daje must call on all of her willful determination in this stunning, compassionate look at what it means to a be a Black teenager in America today.
