Description: "The Boys of Baraka" follows a group of extraordinary 12-year-old boys from the most violent ghettos of Baltimore who are chosen to attend an experimental boarding school in Kenya. Many have developed emotion problems and violent tendencies as a result of coming from broken homes or being raised by parents with drug addictions or criminal records. Removed from these influences, the school presents a strict academic and disciplinary program that allows them to face their issues and begin the journey toward putting their lives on the right track.
