This is the story of a tough teen who goes from the suburban street gangs to a maximum-security prison cell surrounded by hardened criminals.This is a pretty good movie. one i enjoyed watching. it keeps you interested in his story and the outcome.from how he get to where he is to his time behind bars and what follows. this is one of those movies that leaves you thinking a little better about the world when it finishes. its well made and has enough grit to be realistic without upsetting the audience with anything . in the bracket of worth watching/decent is where i'd rank this movie
