Twelve year-old Julius considered himself an insignificant kid, until the day he meets beautiful nineteen year-old, Anisha, and unbeknownst to her, falls in love-at-first-sight, promising her that he will one day marry her when he grows up. Years deeper into his adolescence and longing to stand out from the many older guys also vying for Anisha's affection, he secretly vows to try and keep the only thing that might set him apart and show proof of his dedication: his virginity. He wants nothing more than to get to her, willing to give up everything even if it means sacrificing his every ambition. Following the true account set in suspenseful uncertainty, The Promise of Benton Harbor is an inspiring and sweeping epic, a modern coming-of-age love story about lost chivalry and a young man's extraordinary journey to fulfill a promise.
