Story Ave

Aristotle Torres | US | 106

South Bronx native Kadir Grayson (Asante Blackk) is a teen artistic talent on the brink of finding and losing himself at once. Blinded by the grief of losing his younger brother, Kadir runs away from home. He escapes via the beautifully dark and dangerous world of graffiti. His graf gang Outside The Lines consists of street kids with minds as criminal as they are artistic. Desperate to join the gang, Kadir attempts to rob Luis (Luis Guzmán), an older Puerto Rican MTA conductor on the Story Ave subway platform. Luis offers him the cash he needs if Kadir agrees to have a meal with him. For the first time in his life, Kadir entertains the possibility of his artistic talent being a conduit to a better life.
