It's Just a Gun

"It's Just a Gun" follows a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver, from assembly line through its many owners, and ultimately into the hands of Gabe, a nine-year-old boy from the inner-city of Los Angeles. Bullied at school and terrorized at home by a violentstep father, Gabe has been abused by the world, but now finds himself empowered by his newfound prize.
