TOUGH is a story about an estranged father and son who reconnect after 11 years when they now discover that they share the same apartment complex. The cause for the disconnect was the father inability to deal with his sons lifestyle. 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 tough and also accepted for who you really are?'
