Summary, etc.:
An eye-opening look at the controversial world of a youth boot camp. Go through the intensive six-month drill at the Eagle Academy in rural Belle Glade, Florida, where another class of "at-risk" youths has voluntarily enlisted in the hopes of getting back on track. But as these cocky recruits approach on the inbound bus, they have no idea what's in store for them. Can they endure such tough discipline? What exactly will it take to change their self-destructive ways? It's not exaclty summer camp - but for these kids and their families, it may just be their last hope.
