The year was 1971, and Khalid Muhammad spoke out emphatically against the violence and drugs that plagued, Brooklyn community, and tragically he's killed as a result.
It's now 1985, and his wife Waseema struggles against all odds to hold the family down, but it all gets away from her, quickly. The oldest son, Mustapha, resorts to selling drugs; Rasheed, another sibling, gets caught up in robbing drug dealers; and a sister, Shaheeda, falls prey to crack-cocaine and prostitution.
To only make matters worse, Rasheed and his crew rob a larger than life stash of cash and drugs from one of Brooklyn's top dope pushers, and then make plans to take down his main stash next. Rasheed unwittingly stumbles on a break surrounding his father's death, and the web is further tangled.
But, all is not lost as Khalid's last words are revealed; an Arabic translation for the melodramatic lunacy of Rasheed's crazed world-the clue...Dunya! Be prepared for the mean, unforgivable streets of Brooklyn: The do or die!
