Sonny Goodman may have hopped the "modern underground railroad called education" and arrived in far-flung Minneapolis, but with the impending death of his father, North Philadelphia is calling him home. Quickly caught in the web that inner-city life has woven around his family's dreams, Sonny must find the strength to confront the toll urban corrosion has wrought upon the ones he loves.
