In 1995, Director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) returned to rural Southern Illinois to reconnect with Stevie Fielding, a troubled young boy he had been an "Advocate Big Brother" to ten years earlier. He began a film to discover the forces that had shaped Stevie's entire life. Part way through the filming, Stevie is arrested and charged with a serious crime that tears his family apart. What was to be a modest profile turns into an intimate four and a half year chronicle of Stevie, his broken family, the criminal justice system and the filmmaker himself, as they all struggle with what Stevie has done and who he has become.
Tape plays well (we checked) and is contained in the original sleeve which shows a little cover wear (that's our copy in the listing photo), not ex-rental nor ex-library. We generally ship within 24 hours and always provide delivery tracking numbers for domestic shipments.
