Kwame and Rome Braxton never had anyone except their Nana and each other. So when Kwame got two years for doing nothing but keeping the wrong kind of friends, their lives were turned upside down. Now Rome is 17 and a star quarterback. Deciding where to take a scholarship should be his biggest problem, but he's got other things on his mind. Kwame is getting out of the joint and their mother Pearl is back on the scene and gets beaten up by two thugs who also wreck Nana's house. Now the brothers will have to decide what kind of future they're ready to step up to.
