Release Year:
MPAA Rating: PG
Genre: Drama
Director: Gordon Parks

As an African-American teen in small-town Kansas in the 1920s, Newt Winger largely shrugs off the racial prejudice of his time and place. His calm and self-controlled perspective is in direct opposition to that of his quick-tempered friend, Marcus Savage . But when Marcus' father, Booker, murders a man -- and Newt witnesses the crime -- Newt realizes that going to the police could jeopardize both his friendship and his life.
