Story: Inside an impoverished community in Chicago, Marcus, an ex-convicted felon returns from prison after eight years 0f incarceration. A product of a failed family structure, Marcus, like so many others in his community, functioned under a street-code of savagery. The “Gangster Disciples” governed the territories, and as a former member he lived in ongoing regret of the mob-related acts that led him to prison.
His determination to fit into common society is partnered with his first love, Shonna. Once a sheltered young lady of stern upbringing, Shonna experienced atrocities as a pre-teen which later led to promiscuity and prostitution. Marcus’s release from prison was her breath of hope.
They reunite on a quest to bury their darkened past and experience the fruits of the American Dream by escaping the realm of Chicago city streets. Sources: Amazon; IMDB.
