TOUGH is a poignant tale that follows the story of Marcus and Larry, a complicated father and son relationship caused by years of disconnect. This film confronts issues of identity, self-awareness, fatherhood, and family. The title itself is a play on masculinity within the American society and within the African American community and asks the question "What does it really mean to be a 'tough' individual?" And "Can one truly be accepted for who they really are even if it contradicts one own ideology?"
