Our Review

Outlined in Chalk' by Karinthal T McCray, attempts to talk about loyalty and trust, and such a theme is clearly evident. It also talks about the troubles faced by young black men who are exposed to guns, drugs and crime at a very tender age, and how music is one of the only ways out for them. Such a plot is also very clear. Overall, there is a clear flow in the script but removing few characters and making the main characters stronger would have helped the story much more. Overall its a good screenplay to read.
