Director Statement

Our islands of the Bahamas are viewed as paradise to many around the world; and rightfully so. But behind the curtains lie so many young men whose lives are being snatched from this paradise far too soon. Our young boys are spiraling; killing and being killed daily. Dedicated to the life of my closest friend growing up, I created this film to show from an islander's perspective what's causing our youths to go contrary and what it will take to help save them.
