Fabulous Documentary of Marginalized Community
24 November 2019 | by maxinepdxSee all my reviews

This documentary gripped us from the very start. Good photography and editing in a film of a small town on the edge of the Everglades. This film follows the community and 4 senior High School students in their quest to move on to a better life with the support of their families and peers. Football is the ticket out for many of the young men, who have a disproportionate number of players in the NFL.
