Nine individuals who grew up in Harlem tell their stories in this heartrending documentary. They range from a 12-year-old soap-opera actor to a 21-year-old who's imprisoned on Rikers Island. Each speaks about the unique challenge of growing up in a crime and poverty-ridden New York City neighborhood. Among them are an 18-year-old girl who wonders about her young son's future and a 26-year-old who surveys the toll that drugs have taken on his community.
