  • Real life story of an inner city kid

    8.0
    This is a very good made for tv (?) portrayal of a child (Eddie Matos) of an addict, anbandoned and finding a home in the streets at an earlier age. This story is played out often in our urban areas with all too real consequences.

    I can only thank Eddie Matos for his courage to share his story with us and with kids at risk through his P.O.W.E.R. (People Opening the World's Eyes to Reality) outreach. This group of severly disabled young men and women are all victims of street violence and share their tragic stories in the toughest of inner city schools.moreless
