Movie Info

A high school student learns some tough lessons about love, sex, and honesty in this independent drama. Nikita (Essence Atkins) is a 17-year-old girl whose mother (Roz Ryan) has turned to religion in the wake of her husband's death. Nikita, however, is having a bit of trouble navigating the moral and ethical roadways of her own life. While Nikita has an after-school job at a clothing store, she supplements her income by lifting merchandise from the shop and selling it to her classmates, and when she finds herself falling for a boy at school, it turns out to be Mr. Jackson (Kenney Lee), her English teacher, who is not only older but engaged to marry the vice principal (Mari Morrow). As Nikita comes to a crossroads where she has to decide if she's going to take the high road or the low road in life, her friend J-Smooth (William L. Johnson) finds himself in a similar position, as he struggles to leave behind his past as a petty thief without alienating his longtime friends who are still steeped in the street life.more
