As a High School Senior, Michael has to deal with gang violence, drugs, hatred, poverty, and racism every single day, and make the decision to rise above to become the change, or follow his brothers down the road into a gang. In the end he has to make the tough decision between betraying his family or taking a stand for change and to become the light in the darkness. Because after all, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
