Mann lost his younger brother, Jason, two years ago-an innocent bystander in a shooting on his own porch. Murders are a frequent occurrence in Mann's neighborhood. They're so common, in fact, that he and his best friend, Kee-Lee, are keeping a running tally of all deceased, since no one else seems to be paying attention. Still, it's not enough. More and more, Mann escapes reality through painting and horseback riding, but eventually turns to fighting, cheap thrills, and much worse. In a last effort, his father does the one thing he thinks will teach his son how to survive. What seems like a good idea can quickly turn tragic when a father's good intentions force his son down a destructive path. Another wrong turn, and it will be over for Mann as well. Bang!
