"The Trade" is about unique people and their purpose in your life.
Sometimes people are not what they seem to be. They can be leading you into a trap when least expected. The question is how can you evade it?
Miami Beach Senior High School (MBSHS)
"Take a Knee" is about a student with so much to live for who finds himself at the wrong place at the wrong time.
A student with a chance to provide for his mother and him by winning a scholarship finds himself struggling to complete a task- which at first seemed fairly tangible; only to get stopped in his tracks while competing against the very thing that would have kept him going.
