For anyone who believes in the transformative power of art, this is a coming-of-age story for you. We follow a young man and woman challenged by the realities of drugs, gangs, and family dysfunction in their community. Yet, in the face of adversity the two find a mural art project that allows them to see a different future. This magical film is the impressive directorial debut by muralist Kyle Holbrook – originally from Wilkinsburg – who founded MLK Mural in 2007. His vision was to use public art as a positive way to reach kids.
