Synopsis:

“One in five residents of NYC lives below the poverty line.”

Mahogany - Reel Lives

One of five residents of New York City is living below the poverty line. Many of these people live in public housing where they are subjected to poor living standards, gang violence, drugs, abuse and much more. The children that grow up here are also exposed to all of this. This film explores how a child of the projects is trying to reconcile her past so she can move forward with her future.
