Wow an ok film but the wow factor comes in as it's a real story.
It's about s teacher that has grand ideas of how to teach kids in a gang war zone school. Half the kids are tagged. All aren't expected to graduate. Let alone live that long. All are said not to be able to read what's the point in teaching them
The teacher grows with them and learns shocking horrible things these kids saw in the nineties. And teaches them what they have in common. Only one kid had heard of the holecauast. One. All of them had been shot at and have least lost one friend to gang violance.
They wrote a book. And it was made a film. Which film 4 showed. Which I watched.
These kids related to Anne frank and a lass that grew up in Bosnia in the war. They got people that knew them to come to their school
I was in awe. I was impressed and would recommend it to all. Makes my life seem tame even though I saw some of the violance these kids or now adults saw
