In NYC's Spanish Harlem, Puerto Rican emigrant Juan Jose (Bryan Burke) enters a new school where he becomes friendly with Joey (Kyle Gibson) and Louie (Mario Renden), who call their new pal J.J. The three unite as a tight trio of close friends, hoping to someday open a bar together. The story leaps 15 years into the future, revealing they never opened the bar. J.J.'s life is beginning to unravel as he moves from cocaine to heroin, and his two buddies take steps to help him. The story features a voiceover narration by J.J., and the soundtrack songs include performances by Otis Rush, Jerry Vale, and Jamie Rollins.
