In America, a kid drops out of high school every nine seconds. Imagine if they didn't. This is the compelling question behind award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio's newest project "Ten9Eight," a thought provoking film which tells the inspirational stories of several inner city teens (of differing race, religion, and ethnicity) from Harlem to Compton and all points in between, as they compete in an annual business plan competition run by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).

NFTE thus teaches the fundamentals of entrepreneurship through a variety of programs that includes its annual National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge, in which tens of thousands of kids pit their business plans against each other in a sort of free-market spelling bee judged by CEOs of major companies.
