When the death of his father leaves a young but hardened inner-city youth to fend for himself in the unforgiving urban landscape, the homeless child is forced to work for a wealthy but crooked hustler in director Ferenc Toth's hopeful look at the plight of forgotten youth. Though life in Harlem certainly isn't easy for the struggling L, an offer to go to work for charismatic moneyman Zee presents L with an irresistible means of escaping his current malaise. Now faced with the decision of following Zee down the lucrative but criminal path of a hustler or honoring his hardworking father by making an honest living, L must step back, put his life into perspective, and make the final decision of which path to walk in life.
