The film follows several people over the course of three years, including 2000 Fellow Clayton Guyton (pictured above, in a still from the film), founder of the Rose Street Community Center, 2017 Fellow Alex Long, who works at Safe Streets and founded the McElderry Youth Redemption Boxing Program as part of his Fellowship, and City Councilman Brandon Scott.

Meryam Bouadjemi, a 2015 OSI Community Fellow, was a co-producer on the film who helped connect New York-based director Marilyn Ness with people in Baltimore.
