Synopsis:
When Randell Adjei was only12 years old, he had already faced three arrests and numerous suspensions. But through poetry, he found a way to share his story, and a way to help those around him. Director Will Murphy introduces us to the founder of RISE: a community led by youth, that provides a much-needed safe space and encourages free self-expression and healing through performing arts.
