Cuba Gooding Jr. plays Dwayne Johnson (“DJ”), a counselor at a youth correctional facility. The incarcerated girls and young women come from troubled – often violent — backgrounds. Many of them belong to gangs and have been involved with illegal drugs – as users and/or dealers. In the words of DJ, “They come in [here] so broken…These are girls who’ve been abused and objectified their whole lives.”
