Paper Soldiers follows an overeager burglar named Shawn (Kevin Hart) through the ups and downs of his short, stressful career. Already on parole but faced with the power being turned off and his child forced to eat nothing but cereal, Shawn convinces an older thief (Derrick "Capone" Lee) to train him. He soon finds himself caught between his angry girlfriend (Tiffany Withers), his incompetent would-be-criminal friends, and a neighborhood sociopath with a hair-trigger temper (Beanie Sigel).

Was originally written as a drama. Some of the more serious scenes were filmed but cut from the final print. Such as, Shawn's son finding his gun and pointing it at his mother, Shawn crashing during the chase, and another scene with Shawn crying over the turn of events. See more
