Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival, this raw, uncompromising [and] auspicious feature debut (Screen International) from filmmaker Matty Rich is a remarkable tale about hope, passion and consequence told honestly, powerfully and ‘straight from the heart (Reader)! Dennis is sick of his dead-end life in one of Brooklyn’s toughest housing projects. Seizing an opportunity to get rich quick, he convinces his two best friends to help him rob the localdrug lord.
