To Be Heard is the story of three teens from the South Bronx whose struggle to change their lives begins when they start to write poetry. As writing and reciting become vehicles for their expressions of love, friendship, frustration and hope, we watch these three youngsters emerge as accomplished, self-aware artists who use their creativity to alter their circumstances. A verité film intimately shot over four years, To Be Heard is the story of three friends and the love that develops between them as they evolve as artists. In a community where friendships are kept tenuous for many reasons, these three build a bond based on language, respect and the need to survive.
