Four teenagers come of age in a working-class Atlanta neighborhood where hip-hop sizzles and roller skating rules. Seventeen-year-old Rashad (Tip Harris) was forced to become the man of the house early. Since the death of his parents, he's been responsible for himself and his little brother, Ant (Evan Ross). As Rashad tries to keep Ant in school and out of trouble, the only bright spot in his life is New-New (Lauren London), who sees something special in him, something more than he sees. When the two meet, Rashad's future starts to open up for the first time. But New-New has a secret that's getting harder and harder to keep.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Strong lead performances and catchy musical interludes rescue this coming-of-age story from its formulaic script and uneven direction.
A contradictory approach ultimately muddles the film despite some heartfelt and evocative moments...

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie includes frequent allusions to sexuality and young people testing limits of authority. A 14-year-old character skips school and sells drugs: subsequently, he's suspended from school, chastised by his brother and uncle, beated by a group of older guys, and shot by his drug dealer employer (shooting takes place off screen and boy does not die). Girls wear revealing clothes, their bottoms featured in several "booty" shots. We hear that two boys lost their parents in a car accident.
