Synopsis

Marybeth (Kerry Washington) is a pre-op transsexual working as a prostitute and living with her lover, Benny, a small time burglar. In spite of their lines of work, they live a somewhat normal life as a married couple. Manny (Victor Rasuk) works two jobs: the late shift in an all night bodega surrounded by druge dealers and prostitutes, and as a security guard in a Welfare hotel to provide for his family. Willy, ten years old, lives in the Welfare hotel with hisister, mother (Illieana Douglas) and her violent boyfriend, begging on the street so he and Susie can buy some fast food to ear. Romeo (Evan Ross), a street tough, roams the streets with his gang, terrorizing anyone who comes in his path. These four stories come together in a powerful climax of love and salvation, showing that despite the obstacles of life in the innter-city, humanity and hope can still prevail.
