Fresh,1994, written and directed by Boaz Yakin in his film directorial debut, and produced by Lawrence Bender.

An emotional coming of age story, it offers a realistic glimpse of the dangerous life in New York City's projects during the crack epidemic.  

Michael, nicknamed Fresh (portrayed by Sean Nelson), is a 12-year old kid running drugs for gangsters, notably Esteban (Giancarlo Esposito). Inspired by the chess lessons of his father, an alcoholic speed-chess master (Samuel L. Jackson), Fresh devises and executes a brilliant plan to extricate himself and his drug-addicted sister (N'Bushe Wright) from their hopeless lives.
