Daje Shelton, a black 17-year-old girl in St. Louis, fights for her future as she is placed in an alternative high school and navigates the marginalized neighborhoods, biased criminal justice policies and economic devastation that have set up many youth like her to fail. Over two years we watch as Daje struggles to maintain focus in school, attends the funerals of friends killed around her, falls in love with a classmate, and navigates a loving-but-tumultuous relationship with her mother. FOR AHKEEM illuminates challenges that many black teenagers face in America today, and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive.
