The SHU indie movie

Title: The SHU
Genre: Crime, Coming of Age

Mac (Vietnamese) and Butternut (Black) are adolescent best friends, who live in a rough neighborhood in Richmond, VA.  They enjoy playing basketball, munching on eggrolls at Mac’s family’s Vietnamese takeout, and watching the evening news together, preferably ABC News with Peter Jennings.  When Mac’s older brother is murdered, Butternut and Mac mistakenly send an innocent stranger to prison.

Sixteen years later, the former friends reunite and try to free the innocent man, who is still stuck in solitary confinement.  To accomplish this, they will need to confront their former bully and find the actual murderer.
