THE BREAK is the personal vision of U2‘s world-renowned guitarist, The Edge, who believes that everyone deserves a chance at a decent life–especially youth who are living without a home or support system through no fault of their own. Featuring original music by The Edge and produced by Gigantic! Productions, the multi-award winning team behind such acclaimed documentaries about youth in crisis as Gone Too Far, True Life: I’m Deaf and I’m Addicted to Crystal Meth, this documentary is an exciting and emotional voyage through unexplored territory.
