At a time when the world has never seemed more divided, In The Zone is a story about a man who, despite all the obstacles, is trying to bring people together. And its working. Terrance Wallace has already enabled over a hundred minority teenagers in New Zealand to create educatio...nal and personal success through a pioneering scheme which gives them access to influential schools with opportunities previously beyond their reach. Over time, Terrance has become a father-figure to many of the teens in his care, and has encouraged them to in turn inspire and empower others. But with his own family directly impacted by escalating political tension and violence back home in the USA, he begins to face the heart-wrenching decision of choosing between the kids for whom he is a guardian and mentor, and his own community in Chicago. Throughout its powerful narrative, this film raises poignant questions about education, privilege, diversity, and cycles of inequality across the Western world, and shows us that nobody is too small to make a difference.Read more
