This film isn't the same as most. Most say if you're from "the hood", violent area's there is a loyality to die there early and except it. This says no, this says you should leave and survive and grow beyond the confines in where you were born. Ofcourse the book is completely different. Leaving your friends and family, moving away, seeing the world and experiencing who you are. Then come back to see who you aren't anymore! Brilliant.
