My emotions were on a roller coaster ride with this movie, but it was good. Talk about pay back...the pay back in this movie was unbelievable, yet heart warming. A young man kills an innocent husband and father during a gang initiation. He was told that the gun was not loaded. He and his buddy escape capture, but one of the young men actually has a conscious. He be-friends the dead man's family and makes sure that they are healed, healthy and whole. He assists the widow (who resorts to turning tricks to make ends meet) find a better paying job; he keeps the son from the thug life and he turns the shy/introverted daughter into a blooming college freshman. The daughter also falls in love with him. In the midst of all of this, he himself is accepted into college. All is well that ends well...right? Well, if you are tired of the typical flicks, you should see this one because it will be a favorable change. After the young man's mother is killed, he must make a decision. Will her death be enough to account for his sins? Has his good deeds for the family of the man he killed prove to be enough of a redeeming quality? Check it out to see. The ending really is jacked up.
