The foolishness of this approach comes crashing down on them and sends them into a self-destructive spiral that takes years to reverse. After the drug related deaths of several family members the now single mother turns to addiction, the remaining two sons take two opposite roads...one becomes a drug dealer and the other uses the opportunities of his academic gifts to escape, but he is torn thinking he owes his brother for taking the blame for a thoughtless act years ago. He then reaches out to save his brother one more time while trying to free the mother from the ravages of her addiction. Ultimately, the story is one of redemption. The triumph of the human spirit, the saving of a family, the healing of a community and the liberation of a people are all embodied in this story. Written by Rashida Turner
