BlackbirdBy Image Ent.
Seventeen-year-old Randy (Julian Walker) tries very hard to be a good person. Since his father left, Randy takes care of his emotionally disturbed mother (Mo'Nique), and he's the kind of friend all of his classmates can depend on. As strong as he seems on the outside, Randy is hiding a secret inner struggle and denial of his sexuality. It's not until he opens himself up to love that he discovers that becoming a man means accepting who you really are.
