Land of the Free


In South Central Los Angeles, we follow three characters, who fight an everyday battle to stay out of crime. The inner and outer obstacles are plenty when you are a young boy growing up between gang members, or a teenager trying to raise a child when the only job on your resume is drug dealer, or a 42-year-old just released from a 24-year sentence and trying to start over in a new and changed world.
