At home, Carter's wife Sharice, a socialite who grew up in the suburbs, chafes at the financial and personal strain of raising two young children in the inner city. Sharice pushes Carter to use her uncle's connections to get a job in a fancy downtown law firm. Carter agrees to leave the defender's office for a new job, though not to join a fancy law firm.

Carter struggles to keep his family together, expand the direct action campaign, and survive a ... Written by Jujitsu Films, LLC

The ending could have been different or better.
21 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie and I enjoyed it very much. However I do feel that the ending could have been much better. It sort of left you wondering...is there anything more? I think the ending could have been a little better than that. Above all I feel that Roger Smith as an excellent outstanding actor and he truly does play his part and then some. I would recommend this movie to others to view. I am also a big fan of Roger G. Smith and I also enjoy watching him in some of the films of his early career days. I watched him in A Huey P. Newton Story which I also give a 10+. Very. very, very good character to resemble. Why have I not noticed him before? After looking through his filmography...I had not realized how many movies that he appeared in. I had to go back into my video library and dig them out to review over again. Dam he's fine. Keep up the good work Roger. You Rock Sweetie!!!!
