Moses Johnson (Tosin Cole) is a 17-year-old track star from the South Side of Chicago, who is about to head out to college as a scholarship recipient; Franklin Roberts (Courtney B. Vance) is a Public Defender at Chicago’s Cook County court who’s just received devastating news from his doctors about a potentially lethal cancer. When a drug bust goes wrong in Moses’ neighborhood, leading to the death of a police officer, Moses finds himself at the center of the clash, and Franklin can’t bear another young man from the south side caught up in the system.
