On this sliver of a paradise in the Eastern Caribbean, four young friends find themselves caught up in a struggle for their very survival. Their friend and mentor has been killed, and another one of their friends is on the run from the police. Can they trust the snooping reporter mining for a scoop? Is that all he wants? And what about the detective who comes offering gifts for information? What is the price for loyalty? On the Block takes us into the lives of these four teenagers working through issues of trust and the pain of emotional and physical abuse to harness the insecurities which challenge their development into adulthood. Despite the chaos around them, they use their wits and their intelligence to navigate dark waters, while forging deeper bonds of love and friendship.
