The film circulates a night in the life of “Ed” and his uncle “Jamal”. Ed, a young high school freshman who has the entire world ahead of him, sits in the safety of his mother's inner city apartment and completes his nightly studies. All the while, his 19 year old uncle, Jamal, has fallen into the world of hustling to provide for himself and his family. On this night, Jamal has to make a run and tasks Ed with completing a few sales. Ed reluctantly accepts and what lies ahead is an experience that displaces him from his child-like innocence.
