Robert Townsend's "In the Hive" tells the story of a young man pulled from his father's gang and forced into a reform school. Fox, Jonathan 'Lil J' McDaniel.

With Michael Clarke Duncan, Loretta Devine, Vivica A. Sixteen-year-old Xtra Keys hopes to raise his son better than his boozy, razor-edged mother raised him, and he just might get his wish when he's thrust into an unorthodox alternative school full of underprivileged boys. Directed by Robert Townsend. We may expect that we are about to see a tardy inspirational film from 1990s South Central Los Angeles, in which a young man undergoes a personal transformation, with the usual melodramatic difficulties, leading to triumph in the third act.
