Are These Kids Ready To Be All They Can Be?

Wake up call is 4 a.m. Entertainment is a bucket of ice water on your head. Welcome to boot camp!

Winner of the prestigious DGA award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary, High School Boot Camp is an eye-opening look at the controversial world of a youth boot camp. Award-winning filmmaker Chuck Braverman takes us through an intensive six-month drill at the Eagle Academy in rural Belle Glade, Florida, where another class of "at-risk" youths has voluntarily enlisted in the hopes of getting back on track. But as these cocky recruits approach the inbound bus, they have no idea what's in store for them. Can they endure such tough discipline? Will they survive the Marine-type training? What exactly will it take to change their self-destructive ways?

It's not exactly summer camp - but for these kids and their families, it may be their last hope.
