Trailer for For Ahkeem.

When 17-year-old Daje winds up in juvenile court and risks expulsion from high school, we quickly learn she’s one of many Black youth caught in the school-to-prison pipeline. Living in St. Louis, Missouri, she faces an uncertain future growing up in a marginalized neighbourhood surrounded by gun violence, police brutality and a biased criminal justice system. In this powerful and intimate coming of age story, a pathway opens when Daje is placed in an alternative high school and love blossoms with classmate Antonio. But just as things seem hopeful, events in Ferguson break open with the shooting of Michael Brown, and Antonio finds himself drawn into the criminal justice system. Daje, discovering she’s pregnant, questions how she’ll protect her new family in a world and system that’s set up for them to fail.
