The unanimous winner of the 1998 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Slam follows Ray Joshua who, while trapped in the drug-infested war zone of southeast Washington, D.C., gets caught up in a drug deal gone bad and is sucked into the criminal justice system. In jail, he again faces the pressure of drug and gang culture but finds truth in himself and his craft thanks to a 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.

Directed by Marc Levin, 1998, U.S., 100 minutes, English, drama.
