Product Of The Environment by Shawn Hicks

Within the concrete jungle of New York City, four seniors in high school try to persevere through an urban atmosphere made up of crime, abuse, and neglect, as they attempt to figure out life and succeed in the process.

Yvonne struggles with her family’s domestic violence, as well as with her ties to a female gang, as she figures out what to do after graduation. Marlon, who aggressively suffers from Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, tries to straighten up and avoid going back to prison in spite of when his behavior leads him out of control. Treyshawn moves to start a music career while dealing with a family broken from incarceration and addiction, as he follows down the same path through his own illicit activities. And Tonya, a young parent, struggles to graduate and pursue her dreams in spite of having no support and dealing with circumstances that could bring catastrophe for both her and her child.

Gripping, provocative, and even funny, Product Of The Environment will make you contemplate the lives of young adults as they come of age within the unforgiving inner cities of America.
