How We Got Started

The Juvenile Delinquents was put together to provide teens with lead characters they can connect with. We hope readers won't  share similar life experiences, but trust that the characters will broadly appeal because of their attitude towards the challenges they face, their ingenuity, flaws, strengths and weaknesses. 

The Movie has been licensed to be made into a Feature Film, which is currently in pre-production with filming penciled in for  - August 2018 in NYC.

This is a dark tale concerning broken teens looking to obtain the one thing their parents failed to provide them with - A future. It is recommended for 15+



A gritty, fast paced drama detailing a life on the run from these teens perspective, as incarceration and consequence looms.  

The Juvenile Delinquents (JD’s) attempt to create a new world order following a disastrous series of events that culminates in loss of life. Forced to band together the dysfunctional group of teens fight everything including themselves, as they try to find a purpose for their endangered freedom, which they must protect as repercussions loom.

The story starts when five male graduates of juvenile detention out on a lark, run into two drunk girls in the park. This fateful turn reunites two friends, and sets all seven teens on a course of misadventure towards bloodshed. 

Bonds of brotherhood and friendship mix with the unease of being total strangers as abrupt escalations initiate enduring binds. Under duress, group survival requires the teens to conquer problems resulting from their mistakes, desires, competitiveness and core function of resistance to authority. 

Danny a by-product of his mother’s aspirations to marry money tries to lead the group, but is relentlessly challenged by orphan and troublemaker Nick, who survived a tough upbringing by having his biggest problems solved by elder brother Marko, who at 6 foot 4 is a powerful conflict resolution device. Nick’s partner in crime Ryker, was raised by his devoted dad in a house not fit for children, mirror opposite of forced recruit Chris, who comes from a supportive and loving family, leaving him little in common with most, and struggling to fit in.

None of the boys were serious criminals until set free from incarceration, when their chance meeting with child abuse survivor Sarah and fellow runaway Lin becomes the catalyst for carnage.
