A talented by frustrated inner-city basketball star goes to desperate measures to ensure his scholarship after receiving a failing grade in this racially charged drama from director John Mollica. Javon Robinson (Alvin O. McCray) is a star on the court, but the rage he feels the inside leads him down a dark path filled with addiction and violence. When Javon fails his English course and begins to see his dreams of escaping the inner-city slowly slipping away, the embittered teen blames his poor grades on racism and takes his teacher hostage in a shocking act of anger and desperation.
