Blue Hill Avenue is the story of 4 friends growing up in Roxbury (Boston). They start with peddling marijuana in high school, and end up as hard core crack dealers. Tristan (played by Allen Payne) is the star of the movie and the leader of the gang.
Throughout the movie, Tristan's family confronts him his dealing. During a particularly painful family incident, Tristan's father approaches Tristan and asks how could he end up a dealer when he came from such a good famliy. Tristan is at a loss for an explanation, and responds to his dad, "Because I'm good at it".
The film includes lots of action, perhaps a bit more violence than was really necessary for the story line. Blue Hill Avenue dares to show how a young man from a decent upbringing can get caught up in the wrong crowd, and how it impacts an otherwise decent family. Towards the end of the movie, Tristan acknowledges that his friends will be the end of him.
Blue Hill Avenue was actually filmed in Canada, in Saint John, New Brunswick. I live in Boston and was impressed how much the location passed for Boston, a good choice on the producer's part.
