A flashy young drug dealer, Sean, is getting kicked out of his group home and ending up in the care of his older sister. On his way to school we see him slide money into the pocket of his sister who is sleeping on the couch. A few blocks away, Eve, an ambitious and talented track star, is ushering herself and her younger siblings out to school. As she walks down the street, runs into her drug addict mother, who begs for money. Eve gives up her lunch and continues on her way to school. At a nearby apartment complex Sean meets up with his "boss" and collects marijuana. He's given an opportunity to sell crack for the first time, and likes the idea of making more money. Eve witnesses this transaction and is disgusted. Later that day, Sean is hanging out at the track with his football friend Darrius watching the girls track team practice. Darrius tries to convince Sean to take Eve to homecoming so he can accompany her best friend Amber. Meanwhile, Amber coaxes Eve to give Sean a chance and agree to the double date. Reluctantly they both agree to do it. During homecoming Sean and Eve bond, and get to know one another. Through Eve, Sean comes to realize the impact his "job" can have on families. Inspired for the first time to do something more with his life than just hustle, with the help of Eve, he applies to college, and to his surprise, gets in. Just as he's about to tell her the good news, Eve stumbles upon his stash of "product", confronts him and breaks off the relationship. As Eve makes her way home that same night, she gets caught in drug dealer crossfire and is gunned down in front of her apartment building. Now Sean must decide whether to go back to the streets and seek revenge for his one true love, or honor her memory by leaving his hood and going to college. Written By Meiko Taylor  Less
