No matter who we are, no matter where we live, we''re all bound by borders. Many of us are content to live within these borders--others are simply forced to exist within them.

Here, survival is key, and for many, the emotional life preserver is hip hop. In the absence of nurturing parents, Jimmy and his friends--cool and charasmatic Future, optimistic dreamer Sol, aspiring activist DJ Iz and slow but steady Cheddar Bob--have created their own family.
