A black teen is stopped by cops because of the color of his skin. I didn’t expect it to get so real.

Filmmaker Reinaldo Marcus Green tells the story of Xavier, a talented high school baseball player with the potential for a full-ride sports scholarship to a good college.

On his way home from practice, he’s stopped by the police. With his bright future in jeopardy, the confrontation is full of suspense and tension as they do a full search of him and his bag. If he’s caught, his life would be destroyed — jail time and a criminal background would virtually guarantee his scholarship would be revoked.

“The choice is up to you about whether you think stop-and-frisk is right or wrong. I’m presenting it in a very matter-of-fact way,” Green said. “I think the issue needs to be addressed, and that’s why I made a film about it. I hope the film brings attention to this issue in a positive way that asks if there’s a more positive way to go about stopping people.”

The ending hints that he realizes the risks and decides that some things aren’t worth ruining a life for.

I’m on the edge of my seat at 2:56… and surprised at 6:35…
