Description
Quentin "QB" Banks had always been a fighter, even though it always seemed as if he was holding on to life by a mere thread. After serving time in prison, QB returned to his Queens, New York neighborhood and began working as the Director of U-Turn, an at-risk community center for teenagers. Nicknamed, "OG -- Original Gangster", QB is respected by all, especially by two of the center's teenagers, Torry and Chase. When someone tries to gun down QB, Chase and Torry's lives change forever. QB fights to suppress his feelings for revenge, while Torry is faced with a new challenge he doesn't think he can endure. Chase on the other hand, carries a secret that could destroy all of them. Will QB retaliate against his enemies? Will Torry overcome his internal demons? Will Chase come clean, tell the truth and prevent others from getting hurt? Only time will tell when you're Under Pressure!
