Taking place in 1997, Brooklyn born Shannon Samuel is an overly sensitive young man who has recently become of age. In a bid to obtain a more suitable standard of living, he reasons that working hard and playing by the rules are key. However, he is finding it increasingly difficult to cope with the ill-timed challenges that life produces and struggles to make sense of a society that he has been naive to. As time progresses and his patience decreases, the deep-seated rage within him begins to surface. Suddenly, conforming to the social norms only seems to further provoke him, leaving roughly two choices: 'continue as is' or 'delve into darkness'. It is not long before he makes new allies that persuade him to his destined choice.
