    Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?

    A racially charged drama that chronicles the lives of teen drug addicts holed up at an island rehabilitation center. When one hapless English teacher tries to make a difference in his students' lives he realizes that he has to overcome the same barriers set by the same failed system that only hinders their development and keeps them coming back. When reality hits, as the story shows, a student either crumbles alone, or proceeds with optimism when finding strength in love. Director Michael LoPorto says, "It's interesting that these themes, which were important in 1969 continue to be as, or even more, important some 30 years later, where addicts are still treated like criminals, where people are still judged by the color of their skin, and where, way too often, people have to whore themselves out, physically as well as mentally, in order to just survive." The language of the era, which might be perceived as anachronistic, remains, spotlighting that with every generation the counter-culture has its own poetic vernacular.
