Lives and language on the edge: three teens from the Bronx tell their stories of friendship, love and struggle, showing how a radical poetry class can ignite change.
Three Bronx teens search for their voices and an answer to the question: Can language change lives.
Karina, Pearl, and Anthony are precariously balanced on the edge.
Inspired by three teachers in a radical poetry workshop, can they write their own life stories, imagining a future where fathers aren’t in jail, mothers aren’t abusive and college is a place where you awake every morning instead of just dreaming about it every night.
A dedicated filmmaking team follows their lives, celebrating the value of poetry, devoted teachers, and the power that comes from writing your own life story.
