Hate, fear, and discrimination defines the reality of millions of Americans still today. And while our nation has made significant strides, the "dream" Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke about 50 years ago, still seems a long way off. And for the life of Michael Scott, pursuing that dream is a day-by-day struggle. As a High School Senior, Michael has to deal with gang violence, drugs, hatred, poverty, and racism every single day, and make the decision to rise above to become the change, or follow his brothers down the road into a gang. In the end he has to make the tough decision between betraying his family or taking a stand for change and to become the light in the darkness. Because after all, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
