From Steve James, the director of 'Hoop Dreams', this gritty yet poignant documentary tells the story of troubled youth, Stephen Fielding, whom James had mentored, as an Advocate Big Brother, ten years earlier. Returning to Stevie's rural Illinois hometown, James finds him battling his anger and facing criminal charges, accused of molesting his 8-year-old niece. What began as a simple character study became an in-depth, four-year examination of Stevie's harrowing upbringing, his ongoing legal battles and James' own involvement in his life.
