"Phenomenal...a new side of gang culture" - well yes the film is phenomenal. New side of gang culture - I don't know about that - this story has been told on reserves across the continent for decades. I like the film because of its honesty - something lacking in the dialogue in this country today, in regards to Native issues. Still, the future looked bleak for the young ones on this reserve - i'd like to see this film updated in 10years in the "where are they now" department.

Not a particularly engaging film, but it gives an on-the- ground view of a community hit with rampant poverty and drug use.
