After their mothers are taken away by authorities, Mister and Pete –– two inner city boys –– are forced to fend for themselves.
Mister (Skylan Brooks) and Pete’s (Ethan Dizon) coming-of-age story is backdropped by the sweltering streets of New York City during one blistering summer. It portrays a creative youth duo who avoid child protective services while trying to find their mothers.
Going against what seems like unalterable circumstances, Mister and Pete play the survival game with “larger-than-life” attitudes.
The George Tillman, Jr.-directed film casts Jordin Sparks, Golden Globe and EMMY Award winner Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Anthony Mackie, and Golden Globe and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson. It also features new music from Alicia Keys, who serves as the flick’s executive producer.
