Director: Joe Manduke
He had all the right moves to put the ball away... until the cops put him away -
for good. UCLA all American and NBA Rookie Of The Year Keith Wilkes and Laurence
Fishburne III (Hoodlum) give spectacular debut performances in the "touching...sensitive
and gripping movie" that's guaranteed to take your emotions for a reckless ride.
Wilkes is Cornbread, a promising high school basketballer who has what it takes to
shoot himself right out of the ghetto...until two cops mistake him for a rapist and
gun him down in cold blood.
But when the police attempt to cover up their mistake,
strong-arming the community into silence with threats of jail time and violence,
it's up to Cornbread's 11 year old brother Wilford (Fishburne) and his pal Earl
(Tierre Turner) to find the courage to speak the truth and clear Cornbread's name.
