Amateurish but sincere, this local indie drama addresses several pressing issues in the lives of south-side youth: gun violence, teen pregnancy, and the high number of public-school dropouts. Writer-director William L. Cochran (who also stars as a troubled student) is clearly ambivalent about these subjects: he doesn't offer a commentary so much as a view from the inside. For better and for worse, there’s nothing to mitigate the script's male, teenage perspective.
