A-list screenwriter David S. Goyer made his directorial debut with this gritty urban drama starring Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo. Zigzag (Sam Jones III) is an autistic 15-year-old living with his abusive, drug-addicted father, played by Snipes. Told by his father that he needs to start paying rent or move out, a desperate Zigzag steals from his boss at his low-paying job. Realizing the horrible mistake he has made, Zigzag turns to Leguizamo as his surrogate Big Brother, who in trying to help the boy return the stolen money, puts them both in a hot water. Oliver Platt, Luke Goss and Natasha Lyonne costar in this affecting tale of friendship and survival.
