ABOUT:
Daje Shelton, a 17-year- old girl from St. Louis, wants to do the right thing. But growing up in a tough neighborhood, she can’t catch a break: she’s struggling in school, been court ordered to attend a school for troubled youth, distracted by boys, and surrounded by a culture of violence and brutality. Nevertheless, she learns from her commanding mother and endeavors to grow up with grace and determination. The fatal shooting of Michael Brown Jr. in Ferguson, Missouri, provides a powerful backdrop for this masterfully crafted portrait of working-class urban life entrenched in poverty and systematic racism. “This verite doc about a St. Louis teen offers compellingly humane proof of the fact that Black lives matter.”—IndieWire.
