Storyline

Wounded in the war, Tommy Donahue and DD Davis return home from Iraq to their North Philadelphia slum neighborhood. Tommy returns home to his wife, Faith, whom he abandoned while she was pregnant. He meets his four-year-old daughter, Hope, for the first time, and she begins to melt his frozen heart. DD faces the pressure to save his younger brother, James, from becoming a victim of the streets. Meanwhile their oldest brother, Darnell, has risen to become the neighborhood kingpin. The two find themselves trapped in the same slums they joined the military to escape from. As they struggle to make their wrongs right, their own families become entangled in a web of crime and corruption so thick, murder becomes their only option. Written by Sean Kirkpatrick

Could've Been Amazing

Amazing actors in a well written story. The down side- don't go without your Dramamine. I got motion sick! First, I found myself backing up into my chair as if I were inside the actors personal bubble. The camera was at the actors shoulder, complete with all the movement nearly the entire movie. The camera shot was excessively too close and the constant panning around the room made for a dizzying, nauseous experience. I'm not one prone to motion sickness either. I understand that the desired affect was to draw the viewer into the actors, but I wish the cinematography had been different. It really would've been a great movie otherwise. If you can handle it, I recommend it on account of the outstanding acting and story line. It's a great story of how a persons power and control of their own life can be taken away. The characters are very relatable.
