The film starts in 1994, Inez De La Paz (Teyana Taylor) kidnaps her 6-year-old child Terry (Aaron Kingley Adetola) out of the foster care system. She knows what’s in store for him if he stays with the city as she too is a product of the system. But as they try to lead normal lives in New York City, her actions soon catch up to her and her tenuous stability is threatened.
