Really great movie. Talks about real life problems going that kids or people don't talk about. I recommend this to anyone. Watch it, it will change your views towards things.

The descriptor for this film is not quite accurate. The theme is young adults who do not have family to support them whether through death, dysfunction or in one case drug addiction. I was very touched by the music and could relate to their struggles. This film provides a happy ending or better life without washing over the fact that not all people in that same place have that happen.

Touching and well done - part documentary, part drama, part musical with some nice cinematography of Brooklyn.
