Real stories from teens, need for systematic change

This movie is well worth the almost 2 hour running time. It ties in Milwaukee city leaders from organizations that are on the front lines trying to drive change to the district attorney explaining how Wisconsin's juvenile system works, plus from the school system, truly showing a complete picture of where these teens are coming from. Plus these leaders give personal examples of things that they had to overcome to succeed. The director included family members which reinforced the need for systematic changes as you see that even though they may have support in their lives in some way, that poverty in their environments really force the bad experiences they have within their lives. It's heartbreaking to hear how other teens in Marquell's school have even worse struggles and experiences. The three teens that are the storylines really did an amazing job, being vulnerable and honest when you know a camera is there. Telling us viewers hard truths and being real about their personal struggles, disappointments and learnings. This story is so translatable for other cities and teens across the entire United States where there is segregation and disparities in so many of our cities. If this movie doesn't want you to take action and do something to see change then I'm not sure what else would.
