About this title

Synopsis:

After losing his mother and older sister to a fatal car accident, Micheal Jonathan Williams, a.k.a. Stone is forced to live with his drug-addicted Aunt Susie and her likewise crack addicted and abusive live-in boyfriend Roger. To escape his reality, the nine-year-old Stone seeks his refuge on the streets of a tough and dangerous city. With his best friend and aspiring crime partner, Jason Brooks, the two begin their criminal careers by shoplifting. The behavior escalates for the two when they met an older kid, who is also a well-known car thief by the name of Chris Anderson. Chris teaches them how to steal cars and before their thirteenth birthdays, they're helping Chris boost cars for a chop shop. The chop shop is raided under the supervision of Detective Robert Glaze, who takes the utmost pride in high profile collars. Stone, Jason, and Chris are all arrested during the raid. Jason gets picked up by his mom, while Stone is sent to the juvenile and Chris is sent off to prison. His days in the juvenile are cut short as he is released the next day back into the custody of his Aunt Susie. As the next few years pass, Stone acquires a steady girlfriend named Italia and has even begun to run with a street gang known as the Murda Life Affiliates better known on the streets as the MLA. His rivals turn out to be a gang of Mexicans known as the Banditos, and his new hustle for money has become armed robbery. After being kicked out of his Aunt Susie's house for breaking Roger's jaw, his only place to live is with Joyce, the mother of Chris's child. Chris came home after serving three years to die in a high-speed chase with police while transporting drugs. Stone gets arrested by Robert Glaze following a liquor store robbery he committed with Jason. Stone keeps his mouth shut while Jason gives up information on countless dealers and known drug houses. Jason walks and puts word out on the streets that Stone is a snitch. During the next four years, Stone spends his life in a juvenile detention center. During his incarceration, he realizes Jason's betrayal. Italia and Joyce leave him and he changes as a person. He reads a book about a famous teenage con man. He figures out that the only reason the con man got caught was because he never changed or even altered his identity. A plan of action to pursue money formulates in his mind. Four years after his arrest, Stone is released at the age of twenty without caring for a soul. He immediately begins working his cons in altered identities. For months on end, his life is a grind. He has nobody to care about until Vasil enters his life. He meets her at a club, and she turns out to be the cousin of his first love, Italia. Within a very short period of time, the two are a genuine couple and even living together, but all is not well. During his time locked down, Jason has risen to a prominent crime figure in the city, and he has a burning hatred for Stone born from a childhood jealously. Jason also knows that Stone is back and sends multiple threats through old friends. Unwisely, Stone ignores them until members of Jason's crew send shotgun slugs through the door of his truck in an attempt to kill him. Luckily, the slugs miss, but he still ends up with a piece of shrapnel from the door panel embedded in his arm. At the hospital, he is approached by Detectives Winters and Parish, who question him aggressively until he cons them into thinking he is a nobody. Once he has the police off of his back, revenge is the only thing on his mind. Stone hunts Jason down in an altered identity and kills a member of his crew while sending slugs into his old friend's chest. Days after fleeing the scene, the same detectives from the hospital, Winters and Parish show up at his door demanding answers. Knowing that they'd been played like yo-yos has them enraged. They force their way into his home where a fight breaks out. The local sheriff's department is called in to break it up and p
