Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Remy has just been released from juvenile detention and is back in his old neighborhood. He went away because he severely assaulted a guy who insulted his girlfriend, Asia. As a white boy dating an immigrant, Remy has had to take a lot of the inbred racism that exists in the inner-city -- from strangers, his family and even the police. When the white kids and the ""outsiders"" start scrapping over the local basketball court, Remy is caught between sticking up for his friends and siding with Asia, who is now seeing Marcus, the leader of the other group.
