They were both involved in two unrelated incidents with the same person, the resident menace at Alain Locke Middle, Tariq Molten.<br /> <br /> Robeson Battlefield is from a two parent household, where both parents are highly successful and educated. Academic achievement, social consciousness and responsibility are reinforced daily in the Battlefield household.<br /> <br /> Pacino Clapton comes from a single parent household; his mom works two fulltime jobs. Pacino has a ton of responsibilities, including cutting hair to help pay bills, and taking care of his twin five- year-old sisters.<br /> <br /> During this three day span, the young men visit each others home, and "chop it up" on a multitude of subjects including respect of self and Black women, the dire state of hip-hop music, the use of the dreaded "N" word, and masculinity.<br /> <br /> Before long, the three boys are on a collision course. And when they do intersect, their lives are changed forever.
