Based on actual events the film charts a teenaged boy in juvie detention. As he tries to get along he is given a chance to care for some young chicks.
This is a sweet little film that has a definite lived in quality. While the detention center is less crowded than the actual ones that I know of, the film scores points in the little moments and details that give us a real feeling of having been there. Clearly the filmmakers were there and they know of what they speak.
I was moved.
Worth a look.
