Synopsis >

Near the Jersey Shore, four cocky at-risk teens try to charm their way through a harrowing day in a New Jersey jail. Samir, an 18-year-old thief, is a kid on the make, selling tea as marijuana to unsuspecting teens as well as beating those who cross him. Inside one of New Jersey s toughest jails, Samir is confronted by Sgt. Mahoney, an old school corrections officer who seems to revel in the barrage of intimidation he dishes out. But when Sgt. Mahoney exposes his own child s fateful brush with the law, Samir starts to see how vulnerable he really is. Teshon s spiritual grandmother prays that he will leave the gang life behind while Fredrick s grandmother welcomes him to the jail--where she works as an officer. Their day in jail takes a frightening turn when a gunshot rings out, sending everyone to the ground.
