Spoken with honesty, Duggan tells the story of several individuals from different backgrounds and class whose lives are intertwined by one decaying neighborhood. Divided into six sections, Duggan is connected through content and theme: through race, struggle for identity and place, beauty, spirituality, hatred, and drugs. Now each individual is left to fight for their lives before it is too late.
