 This film tells two interwoven stories of two single-parent families in a poor, racially-mixed neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Hank (Larry Gilliard, GRACELAND) has a fantasy of escaping his drug infested neighborhood by winning the lottery. He falls in love with a latino girl (Barbara Gonzalez) who is heading off to college on a full scholarship. The story takes place against the backdrop of a winning lottery ticket worth $27 million being sold to someone in the neighborhood from the local liquor store.
