When a dysfunctional family is crammed into a cramped apartment and forced to make the best of their situation, tempers flare and tensions turn in director Carl Gilliard's heartfelt family drama. A family doesn't have a healthy foundation without a strong parental figure, but deadbeat dad Joe certainly doesn't fit that bill. A manipulative druggie who seems more interested in getting stoned than raising a family, Joes' put upon girlfriend Taco is fighting a failing battle to raise her daughter Simone in a stable environment. When Joe's estranged son Andre decides to move in, a revolving door is opened that finds a series of questionable visitors dropping in for a visit. Though Andre may have collegiate aspirations, living in a crumbling building run by an opportunistic owner may prove too much of a distraction to bear. Heather Sher, Akeem Smith, and Tony Winters star in a film that shows just how hard life can be when society seems to have written you off.
