See I was adopted so I get the struggle. This is a story that really needed to be told, so I’m proud to be a part of seeing this vision brought to life,” says Udonis Haslem-Miami Heat Star and The Secrets Of The Magic City Executive Producer

This movie looks dumb good. It’s just the kind of feel bad movie I like.
