In a refreshing if somewhat ominous change of pace, this independently produced film explores the life and ambitions of its central characters, Frank, a black L.A. drug baron and his younger brother "Sugarpop," who has been given the right academic credentials to move his family into the "legitimate" business world. When the older man is gunned down by assassins, it's up to the younger man to helm the family business, get revenge for the killing, and leverage their earnings into some form of respectable participation in society at large. Fortunately for his short-term goals, he is an expert in the use of light aircraft, and he and his gang members skillfully use them to gain a strategic advantage.
