When Langston Holiday is forced to move with his mother into the gritty public housing projects, better known as 'The Vil', after his father abandons them, she is determined to make a man out of Langston, and by the end of his senior year, he is one of the best high school basketball players in the nation. That's when he makes the biggest decision of his life: to forgo college and enter the professional ranks. When word hits the streets about Langston's success, his newfound wealth stirs up plenty of envy in the projects, sparking a wave of drama, crime and mistrust.
