Synopsis

Two childhood friends, Tommy Brown and Sincere, climb the rungs of organized crime. To many in his neighborhood, 17-year-old Tommy is the Ghetto president--a womanizing charismatic thug consumed by wealth and power. In stark contrast to Tommy, Sincere is a refined intellectual who, between scores, occasionally likes to read and spend time with his family. Suddenly their trust and loyalty are challenged when it becomes clear that they want different things out of life. A once genuine relationship is starting to rip at the seams and is finally put to the test on the cusp of the new millennium, New Year's Eve 1999.
