Actor-turned-director Matt Stanton takes the helm for this tale of an inner-city African-American youth who flees to the country after witnessing the murder of a close friend, and subsequently befriends a kindred spirit who helps him to overcome the lingering shadows of small-town racism. Demetrious is a Houston youth who has just seen his best friend gunned down in cold blood. Profoundly shaken by the senseless act of violence, the frightened teen jumps into the first cab he can find, and prepares to go as far away from the city as the cash in his pocket will take him. Dropped of in the outskirts of rural Trublin, Demetrious wanders into town to find that the tall tales of Southern hospitality don't necessarily extend to all races. As the sidelong glances of the closed-minded locals quickly dissolve into scowls, a man named Darring kindly takes the weary youth under his wing. Later, as Demetrious and Darring begin to forge a healing bond that helps one man to overcome his small town demons and the other to move beyond a trauma that has shaken him to the very core, the fragile balance of trust between the newfound friends will be challenged in ways that make them both view their roles in society from new and entirely unique perspectives.
