Production Description

Casting “Bout That Life,” a feature film about three siblings raising themselves. After their parents die, a sister abandons her two younger brothers, forcing the middle child Tyrese to raise and take care of his little brother Tyreke. Being only 12, Tyrese has a difficult time finding work. When a friend introduces him to the world of drug dealing, he decides to deal until he is old enough to land a real job. Twelve years later, Tyrese is still on the streets, now a well-known and beloved dealer. Tyreke is a popular college basketball player in his senior year with many overseas basketball teams interested in signing him. Even though he's successful in his own right, Tyreke sees the love and respect his older brother gets, so he attempts to sample that lifestyle, but Tyrese will do everything he can to keep his little brother off the streets.
