Synopsis by Erin Demers

In Spike Lee's modern-day adaptation of Aristophanes' play Lysistrata, a gang leader's girlfriend (Teyonah Parris) is called to action after a child is killed by a stray bullet. She convinces a group of women to help put an end to the violence in Chicago's South Side by taking a vow of abstinence, which will only end when their men decide to bring peace to the city. Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Hudson, and Angela Bassett co-star.
