Neville is a young black man who hopes to one day be a comedian. But before he can make his
dreams come true, he must face his drug problems and his childhood traumas. His older, white
half-brother is a boxer who ruminates in his anger, while their mother is in jail for killing
Neville's violent and abusive father with a machete. Meanwhile, Neville meets Niko, a young black
singer with extraordinary talent and trying to get her career off the ground.
