We traveled to a small city in St. Louis to do a video to stop a young man from being executed. When asked about his life he said, "You grow into the shape of the container you were raised in." To tell his story, we neede to tell the story of the city and era he grew up in. The city was war-torn from what many called a "storm"; a plague of violence, poverty, drugs, and incarceration. The height of that war was the 90's. We asked the community members who survived to describe their city during that period. The first person we asked, while showing his bullet wounds said, "Do Or Die".
