12 O' Clock Boys
Pug, a thirteen year old boy living on a dangerous Westside block,
has one goal in mind: to join the 12 O' Clock Boys; the notorious
urban dirt-bike gang of Baltimore. Converging from all parts of the
inner city, they invade the streets and clash with police, who are
forbidden to chase the bikes for fear of endangering the public.
Pug looks to the pack for mentorship, spurred by their dangerous lifestyle.
He narrates their world as if explaining a dreamscape, complemented with unprecedented,
action-packed coverage of the riders in their element, guided by the riders themselves
as they take to the streets and clash with Police. The film presents the pivotal years
of change in a boy’s life growing up in one of the most dangerous and economically
depressed cities in the United States.
