Overview

This drama, set in a gritty part of Houston's outskirts, pits brother against brother as the two men try to cope with their childhood family tragedy. Jason and Joshua are opposites. Jason, an ambitious young TV salesman, is the straight arrow. Joshua, an aimless coke-head and frequently jailed petty criminal, is the black sheep. Their father, Maddog was a bitter and maimed Vietnam vet with a penchant for battering his wife, Gloria. To protect herself and her sons from Maddog, she throws him out of the house. In the ensuing fight one of the brothers fatally shoots Maddog. Jason is in love with Lyric, a feisty waitress. As he courts her, his brother Josh plans a bank robbery with his gang. In the end both brothers must face their past and do so in a violent shoot-out.

The best ghetto/romantic story i've ever read. It was sooo sweet and sour all at once!

Nothing beats ghetto love!!! Two people who know what its like to go through the hard times of living in a rough part of town and wanting to make it out in the world to have a better life. I can relate to this - real, true love between a man and a woman is a bond that's hard to break. This is my all time favorite love story, I can't watch it enough.

A classic tale of romeo and juliet with the ghetto fabulous twist. This movie perfectly illustrates the perfect romance. It gives it's viewers the notion that maybe there is such thing as romance and maybe just maybe the love bug might just happen to sting me one day. This was one movie that i watched and in the end it made me for one believe in love again and also it left me feeling all warm and tingly inside. This is a must see for everyone who believes in true love. It also gives hope to those who don't.
