Story


No matter where we live, no matter who we are, we're all bound by borders... some real, some imagined. Many of us content to live within these borders. Others are forced to. But some of us need to break out, burst through, even if what lies on the other side is both frightening and unknown. 8 Mile is a story about these boudaries that define our lives, and a young man's struggle to find the strength and courage to transcend them.
