After 25 years of incarceration, a Muslim convert re-enters society in the Southside of Chicago to face the same streets that led to his imprisonment. Director Mashouf's film is a raw portrait of a man struggling with his past as a gang chief while trying to survive a life lived honestly and redefine himself in a world in which he does not feel he belongs.
