Crenshaw, a neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles, is a place where drive-by shootings and unemployment are rampant. But it's also a place where harmony coexists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Tre Styles (Cuba Gooding Jr.), who aspires for a brighter future; his best friend Ricky Baker (Creator/MorrisChestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky's half-brother Darren "Doughboy" Baker (Music/IceCube), an unambitious drug dealer. In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Creator/LaurenceFishburne) who does his best to keep him on the right track, but the lessons Tre learns are put to the test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems like the only answer.
