Synopsis

The film is the story of South Boy (Daron Fordham). He learns about the criminal underworld from his mentor a retired mob boss (John Martino), who is also the closest thing to a father figure he has known. Determined to find the family he never knew and become a feared and respected gang-lord, he must deal with snitches, government agents and scheming associates through his drug deals, relationships, and life in general. South Boy gets pulled in deep in this inner city exploitation on urban gangs and he is on a journey to reclaim what is rightfully his and to also set everything right.
