Terrence Fisher, a teen living in a housing project in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, had seven of his friends shot and killed by a gun. Terrence is not a gang member or a drug dealer. He is just a normal teenager who likes making hip-hop with his friends. What could he do to stop gun violence in Bed-Stuy before losing another friend, or his own life? He and a fellow teen filmmaker picked up a camera to tell the story about gun violence in their neighborhood. This documentary contains images that could only be captured by someone who has spent his entire life in the projects and experienced fear and sadness of gun violence in his everyday life.
