Tommy takes up temporary housing in a New York City neighborhood plagued by a violent gang called the Souls. Tommy is waiting for his next assignment as a seaman, and though he tries to avoid the gang and his neighbors, it does not work. Soon he is battling the Souls and not only changing their attitudes, but the attitudes of his previously intimidated neighbors as well.
There comes a time when we have to stand up and be counted. This is the story of one man who did.
