After his brother is brutally stabbed in an alleyway in South Central LA, Flip is dealt an ultimatum by his overbearing father: get a job that brings in a steady paycheck or pursue his passion to become a rapper and live on the street. Overwhelmed by the choice, Flip is thrust into a surreal, bifurcated fantasy world where he lives out both destinies simultaneously, haunted by the tragic circumstances of his brother's death.
