Synopsis

17-year-old Rashad was forced to become the man of the house earlier than most. Since the death of his parents, he's carried the responsibility for himself and his little brother Ant squarely on his shoulders. While he does his best to keep Ant in school and out of the trouble that's always lurking in their South Atlanta neighborhood, sometimes it seems like a losing battle--Rashad can't be everywhere at once, and Ant is dangerously close to falling under the spell of a blinged-out local dealer who promises fast money and respect Ant. A talented artist, Rashad doesn't see any future for himself beyond assisting his Uncle George as a janitor after school. Lately it seems the only bright spot in Rashad's life is New-New. She sees something special in him. When the two get together, everything begins to change, and Rashad's future starts to open up for the first time. But New-New has a secret that's getting harder to keep. Behind her ghetto-fabulous front, New-New is actually Erin, a rich girl from the right side of the tracks who's drawn to the vibrant life she sees in Rashad's neighborhood. Her father, successful CEO John Garnett, grew up on the south side of town, but once he left he never looked back. Garnett forbids his daughter from setting foot anywhere near his old neighborhood. So every weekend she leaves Erin behind, lying to her parents so that she can become New-New, the person she thinks she needs to be to find acceptance in Rashad's world. Besides New-New, there aren't many people Rashad can count on. His best friend Esquire is an ambitious student who dreams of attending an Ivy League college, and is willing to do anything to make that dream come true. When Esquire runs into New-New while cozying up to her influential father for a letter of recommendation, he has to make a decision whether or not to blow her cover. When Rashad finds out New-New's real story, he doesn't know who to trust anymore--it seems everyone in his life is lying to him, even the people he loves the most. As Ant gets pulled deeper into the life of a dealer and Rashad's dreams for him begin to fade, Rashad is going to have to make tough choices about what he wants and where he's going.
