For Ahkeem is an intimate coming-of-age documentary against the backdrop of Ferguson, MO. After a school fight lands 17-year-old Daje Shelton in a court-supervised alternative high school, she’s determined to turn things around and make a better future for herself. The film illuminates challenges that many black teenagers face in America today, and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive.
