The world implodes for 17-year-old David when his father kills his mother. He fights to separate himself from the violence in his past. He deals with homework and hormones that draw him toward Yolanda, the hottest girl around. She means trouble because she belongs to bad boy Malik. Malik has it out for David, on the basketball court, as a romantic rival, and as a threat to David's younger sister.
