It's tough enough being a teenager, but for Mason life is especially complicated. Assignments are piling up at school and his teacher won't get off his back, the bullies are merciless and, to top it off, his father has been sent to prison and he's forced to live with his estranged, reckless, marijuana-dealing older brother. Real-life brothers Ryon and Jimmy Baxter surpass expectations in this riveting drama that, while outwardly is about the drug scene, excels in exploring the relationships between the complex, realistic characters that populate the film. It's easy to call first time feature writer/director Ryon Baxter a one man show (he wrote, directed, starred in, produced, and edited the film), but the brilliantly subdued performance by his teenage brother adds substantially to the film's refreshing realism. The incredible performances are bolstered by an impressive, cautiously optimistic script that pulls you in and pulls no punches. --Evan Thomas
