The unanimous winner of the 1998 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, SLAM is a ''coming of life'' ghetto tale of a street pharmacist / aspiring rapper who finds salvation in his rhymes. Trapped in Dodge City, a drug-infested war zone in southeast Washington D.C., Ray Joshua gets caught up in a drug deal gone bad and is sucked into the criminal justice system.
In jail he finds truth in himself and his craft through a beautiful and charismatic writing teacher who leads him to the path of salvation. Using his talent for poetic rap, Ray learns to survive and rise above the pain of his lost generation.
