A story of life and growing-up in the inner city during a more innocent time. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad, sometimes serious, sometimes as carefree and footloose as youth itself. During a time when the so-called generation gap was a wide as the ocean, these young boys journey through their young lives with hope, honesty, and dreams of being the best they can, no matter what the challenge and regardless of what it takes. The street was raw and kind, tough and educating to say the least. The times were much more innocent than today but the children were the same as they've always been. From tough language learned from the streets, to true values learned from their parents, friends and neighbors, growing-up in the city was an experience that left memories, values and standards unequaled by anything else experienced since those warm summer days on 29th Street.
