After getting beaten up by some gang members, the grief-stricken Obie is befriended by Jeremy "Scam" Henderson, an African-American, streetwise kid about his age. They become partners, trying to make it in the world of crime which leads them into danger from a couple of very adult, very professional hitmen.
