EASY IS SENT DOWN MEMORY LANE… BLINDING HIM TO REASON AND RISK, MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE ANYTHING BUT BLACK AND WHITE.

But the investigation sends him on a trip down memory lane: haunted by loss, love, and a hunger that has eaten at him since he was a Black boy on his own on the streets of Fifth Ward, Houston, Texas.

As the case becomes personal, Easy faces a reckoning. A new decade brings with it new expectations: men and women, Black and White, and wrong or right. To save his soul and solve the case, Easy has a big choice to make…
