For the Evans family, three generations living together in a desolate neighbourhood in Chicago's south side, life has not turned out the way that their head - Dorothy - dreamed. Now only vodka will numb her pain. Her children seek other ways to deal with life. Danny's a dealer, Regina's after a decent man, and Reginald turns to God. When their cousin Anthony returns from his sixth spell in jail, he's full of rage. He devises a plan to pull the Evans family out of the desperate cycle of poverty they're stuck in - but what price will he pay to change his family's future?
