Pete has mixed feelings about his younger brother, Simon, wanting to be a cop, and follow in the footsteps of his uncle Bert, a highly respected police sergeant. While, Simon and Uncle Bert are seemingly cut from the same macho mold, Pete is just the opposite, preferring his intellectual interests. Over the years, friction between Pete and his uncle has strained their relationship. Now, years later, Simon manages a movie theater, struggles through college, and still set on joining the police academy. Enter Omar, a former childhood friend of Simon's, but now the neighborhood's loan-shark who has another mutual friend roughed up. The quick-tempered Simon retaliates against Omar and sets off an escalating battle between them. Only an unexpected alliance between his brother Pete and Uncle Bert can stop Simon's vicious cycle of vengeance.
