After a school fight lands 17-year old Daje Shelton in a court-supervised alternative high school, she’s determined to turn things around and make a better future for herself in her rough St. Louis neighbourhood.

But focusing on school is tough as she loses multiple friends to gun violence, falls in love for the first time, and becomes pregnant with a boy, Ahkeem, just as Ferguson erupts a few miles down the road. Poignantly examining how the justice system can prevent people from escaping a life of poverty, For Ahkeem asks the question of whether social mobility really exists for all.

Right Now Film Festival returns to UK cinemas in March 2018 with a programme of feature films that take a deeper look at power structures and inequalities in the world today. Find out more at
