Working his job….

Such a good movie. This little boy is a chess prodigy, but he also sells drugs, his mother is a crackhead, his sister is addicted to heroin and his six younger siblings are sharing one room in a relative’s house. One of his best friends and his first middle-school crush are shot and killed right in front of him. He manipulates and tricks and uses the drug dealers and his best friend to find an escape for himself & his sister, playing everyone against each other, life as a game of chess.
