They Call Us Monsters

Juan, Jarad and Antonio, all between 14 and 16, face decades in prison. To pass the time, they sign up for a screenwriting class and collaborate on a short film about their lives, including Juan’s unrequited love for his childhood friend, Abigail. Halfway through the class, Antonio returns to juvenile court and gets released with time served. Back home, he struggles to avoid the same patterns that first got him locked up. Meanwhile, the realities of Jarad and Juan’s crimes set in. One of Jarad’s victims is only 17 herself and will be confined to a wheelchair for life. Juan faces deportation once eventually released, separating him from his family, including his baby son.  While the gravity of their crimes haunts every frame, these young men are still simply teenagers. Do they deserve a second chance? The question is a societal conundrum beyond legislation and data. To their advocates, they're kids.  To their critics, they’re monsters.

My heart goes out to everyone and everyone of those boys. It's obviously an abuse system. It is absolutely made me proud of them Jared ,Antonio, Juan there imagination and the stories that they had to endure in life. We didn't make them monsters it was the life that they were grew up around no encouragement no hope. The street holds many lies. It's like these boys had no other way. And they were all lost souls. I pray that they find their way. And I'm proud of him for making this documentary to show all the other youth what could happen if you make the wrong decision or if you join a gang. Everybody needs to realize your gang is it your family. They want something from you. And they take everything. Always be a leader never be a follower. Always lead people to get things because you reap what you sow. God bless from Houston Texas 💲Forever Famous
