Description

Do the crime, do the time behind bars. But once you've been in, it can be tough to stay out. Alejandro has served six months for trumped-up charges after a brutal encounter with police. Now that he's out, he's determined to break ties with his gang and forge a new path. But it won't be simple. When Alejandro sees a video of a local girl suffering a similar police assault, he knows he has to meet her. The connection between Alejandro and Chrissie is electric. They just want to move forward--together. But Alejandro's family doesn't approve of Chrissie. Chrissie's family pushes her to go after the police; however, she'd rather just back off the issue. As police violence continues, Chrissie and Alejandro are compelled to help bring justice. But are they willing to hatch a plan that puts them back in harm's way?

This modern twist on Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra explores questions of retreating, fighting back, and defending what you love.
