He gets off to a rocky start with his new family, the Starnes, as they try to heal his emotional scars. Eventually he develops a deep bond with their daughter Ebony. Soon, however, a gang of Korean thugs, the Kim Park Warriors, with roots in Koreatown, start killing blacks in revenge for the murder of David's father who used to be a Kim Park Warrior before buying the rights to the 7-Eleven he worked in. A gang war between the Kim Park Warriors and the Grape Street Crips is brewing. Can David shield Ebony from the ensuing violence? Don't miss this dramatic thriller!
