Synopsis

Diamond is a naturally gifted musician whose drive to realize his dreams forces him to re-evaluate his life and the people around him. With his girlfriend Kia expecting his child and and his childhood friend Gage trying to draw him into a life of drug running and violence, Diamond is pushed to the limit when his mother suddenly dies and his musician father re-enters his life looking for reconciliation. Unsure of which path to follow, Diamond devotes himself to his music and finds support and inspiration in unexpected places.
