Set during those New York summer weeks where stifling heat seems to encase everything. After Johnís absent father is struck by a stray bullet, Primo takes it upon himself to verse a young boy in the code of the streets- one founded on respect and upheld by fear. A member of the Bloods since the age of 12- both in the film and in reality- the streets of Brooklyn are all Primo has ever known. While John looks to enter this life, Primo must decide whether to leave it all behind as he vows to become a better husband and father. Fiction and real life intwertwine, a story of two men that resonates beyond the streets.
