Watch Trailer Director: Minhal Baig
Cast: Blake Cameron James, Gian Knight Ramirez, S. Epatha Merkerson

In 1992 Chicago, as Michael Jordan solidifies his legacy as a champion, the story of two young boys growing up in Cabrini Green begins — they may become legends in their own right. Wide-eyed and imaginative best friends, Malik and Eric wander the city, seeking to escape the banalities of school and the hardships of growing up in public housing. Their seemingly-unbreakable bond is challenged when tragedy shakes their community just as they are learning to fly.

Starring newcomers Blake Cameron James and Gian Knight Ramirez, this new film from writer/director Minhal Baig has already won the Changemaker Award at TIFF and the Audience Choice for Best New US Feature award at the Chicago International Film Festival.

It’s a resolutely poetic, at times even golden-hued portrait of lives unafraid to hope amid growing despair.
