Storyline

Eli and Daniel, two Korean American brothers, own a struggling shoe store and have an unlikely friendship with Kamilla, a street wise 11-year-old African American girl. Kamilla ditches school, Eli stresses about the store, and Daniel tries to have a good time. It's just another typical day at the store until the Rodney King verdict is read and riots break out. With the chaos moving towards them, the trio is forced to defend the store while contemplating the future of their own personal dreams and the true meaning of family. Written by Anonymous

It was a compelling movie touch touch me and many others
26 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Well the movie was about bringing out the raw emotions of the story without gimmick or compromise. The title says it all, one that most people would not dare to use to get a movie out. But this movie was not made to make money or impress but rater get a story out that would reach and touch people. The black and white was effective portraying more of the raw feelings. It was a compelling movie touch touch me and many others. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone.
