In the mixed days of happiness and sadness, life and death, an African-American mother guides her children to avoid the pitfalls of their hardship environment and leap over the systematic roadblocks that confine many to juvenile delinquency.
This riveting tale of faith and perseverance leads to intrigue when her spiritually inclined and ambitious son, Derrick, attempts to build a civic-minded conglomerate that undercuts the retail and gas prices set by a group of avaricious businessmen led by the narcissistic and callous, Erich Hornsby.
Surrounded by fierce opposition that includes people of his race, can Derrick prevail against the powers that be? And if so, how?
