Synopsis:
Ambitious high school senior Kyle-Lee has a lot going on in his life. Not only is he anxiously waiting to hear from Georgetown about his college basketball scholarship, he's also dealing with the demands of a strict coach who doesn't want him hanging in the 'hood. Then there's his mother's new relationship with a security guard, which Kyle doesn't appreciate. To top it all off, his good friend Birdie -- a neighborhood gangster -- wants to know why Kyle won't hang out anymore. Hopefully, things will work out for the troubled teen, but only if he keeps his eyes on the prize.
