Six teenagers from Camden, New Jersey, document the story of their city from the glory days of the postwar boom to
today’s violent and fraught reality. Using filmmaking skills gained at Camden Center for Youth Development, the teens express complex feelings about their home, considered one of the most dangerous cities in America. Through this lens, they become aware of hidden histories and a future that looks both hopeful and bleak.
