“A coming of age story, the film documents 5 young spoken word poets as they navigate their final year of high school, exploring many of the challenges facing young people today, including identity and expression, transitioning into adulthood and overcoming mental health issues, through the unique prism of their poetry. The film highlights the poets of the Get Lit program, a non-profit organization in Los Angeles educating young people through poetry.”
