To protect his mother, sixteen-year-old Clinton Ray (a.k.a. "Black") must run away from his home. Forced to mingle with the worst elements and conditions of urban life, he meets Face, Penny, and Zero, and together they fend for the American Dream.
Inevitably, experience provokes Black to observe his friends, his lifestyle, and his own aspirations, and in his journey of self-discovery, Black must learn how to survive on the streets of Chicago, alter his life decisions, or perish in the confusion of life.
