Jason Wilson runs The Cave of Adullam, a transformational Training Academy in the heart of Detroit where Black boys who are emotionally, mentally and spiritually in debt gather to be trained and transformed into comprehensive men. When Jason started his karate dojo, he thought young Black boys needed more discipline, but quickly realized what’s needed is more love. The film introduces us to four young recruits who are at a crossroads. Jason challenges each of them to confront their unresolved anger, fear, anxiety and lack of focus as they face the toughest decisions of their young lives. Michigan Premiere.
