Me Facing Life: Cyntoia's Story takes a hard look at some of the complex social issues concerning a 16-year-old girl who is serving a life sentence for murder. Cyntoia Brown found herself in a series of bad situations that led to her killing a man. The filmmaker spent nearly six years exploring her life and familial relationships in order to answer a very basic question... why? This documentary pushes aside assumptions about what we think about violence and takes a glance into a startling social mirror that reveals a strong connection between violence in her maternal line and a predestined childhood filled with bad decisions. Producer/Director/Writer: Daniel H. Birman. Featuring "Ready for Love", performed by India.Arie. Courtesy of Universal Motown Records. Under license from Universal Music Enterprises. A PBS Indies / Independent Lens selection. Parental Advisory: Strong Language
