THE HUMAN WEB NY Premiere Thu. Dec. 8 @ 1pm - Schomburg also Sunday, Nov. 27 @ 3pm - Teachers College
CJ, a formerly Yale-bound young man, was recently released from prison after being convicted of a crime he did not commit. Struggling to make sense of life and burdened by internal conflicts, he finds himself slowly drifting into a world of drugs, betrayal, and revenge- a world eagerly introduced to him by his best friend, Wes. Wes manipulates CJ through CJ's affection for his girlfriend and through CJ's blind faith in their friendship. As CJ begins to lose himself to this alien life, he distances himself from his family members, each of whom also struggles with coming to grips with their own painful realities.
