Christopher Rainey is known as “Quest” around his North Philadelphia neighborhood, which is poor and often violent. He juggles various jobs, and struggles to take care of his wife and young daughter. He and his wife created a home music studio to nurture young, aspiring hip-hop artists in their community. A new documentary shows an intimate portrait of the Rainey family.
