In 1994, Grade 5 student Lewis Bennett got into a schoolyard fight that resulted in a stern warning from his principal: “Change your ways or you’ll end up in an Asian gang.” Seventeen years later, Bennett revisits his past to determine if he took a wrong turn along the way.

The film was directed by Calum MacLeod & Lewis Bennett with cinematography by Benjamin Taft. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
