Jody (Tyrese Gibson) is a 20-year-old African-American who lives with his 36-year-old mother (A.J. Johnson). He's never met his father. He doesn't have a job, but he does have two children, one boy and one girl, born to different mothers. Jody's world is jolted when his mom's new boyfriend, ex-con Melvin (Ving Rhames), moves in. Jody is protective of his family. Melvin tries to show Jody the path he's on. Both are well-intentioned, but the conflict escalates. Jody finds himself at a crossroads, torn between two influences, the street-smart, mature Melvin and the violent gangsta Rodney (Snoop Dogg), in this powerful family drama from director John Singleton.
