For 15-year-old Trife, life is a day-to-day struggle. Trapped between the worlds of his school friends, the girl he loves, and the draw of his powerful and dangerous uncle, Trife must choose between the path he knows is right and a life of guns, drugs and violence that he has come to know only too well. When a classmate's suicide leaves Trife and his crew, Moony and Jay, with the day off school, the tragedy seems overshadowed by the opportunity to shop, get high, get laid and party - but in a world where sex is currency, drugs are easy, and violence is a way of life, trouble can never be too far around the corner. On these streets kids grow up fast... and 48 hours... can be a lifetime.

Boring stupid useless film. Probably only of interest to those who live like this, or those obsessed with ethnic issues (Guardian readers, BBC munchkins, those with white guilt).
I thought this film badly made and shot - and quite frankly boring as hell. It is NOT a quality filmn just because it has black people in it, has a black director and is about black issues! That's a racist opinion, actually.
