Rashad (Harris) is a teen living in Atlanta with his Uncle George (Williamson) and his little brother Ant (Ross). He and his brother have been raised by George since their parents died in a car accident, and they work with him at the Swann Cleaning Service, the family's business which George took over when Rashad's parents passed. When not working or finishing his last year of high school, Rashad spends most of his time with his friends Brooklyn (Albert Daniels), Teddy (Jason Weaver), and Esquire (Long). Rashad is a talented artist but doesn't see much of a future in that field as he's become accustomed to working the family business. Esquire, Rashad's best friend, goes to a prep school on the opposite side of town from where they live, and is trying to attend an Ivy League college after senior year. However, he finds out that he'll need a letter of recommendation from someone in a high position to have a good chance of getting into the school he wants.
This movie shows self-expression beacuse this man is trying to get te girl he loves. He realizes that he has his friends by his side.
