Posted March 29, 2016

PLOT SUMMARY: Wes (10), has always looked up to his older brother Dre (13) and has always wanted to be included in his older brother’s group of friends. As a playful prank to try and scare his younger brother, Dre tries to coerce Wes into stealing some sodas and snacks at the local bodega. He hands Wes a toy gun to use in hopes to scare him from accepting the task. Wes doesn’t give in and soon both boys find themselves in front of the bodega.
