Two brothers, survivors of family tragedy, take different life paths: one falls for a high-spirited waitress and dreams of success, the other follows a life of petty crime. Their lives reconnect in shattering fashion.
Jada Pinkett Smith,
Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
Four Black women, all of whom have suffered for lack of money and at the hands of the majority, undertake to rob banks. While initially successful, a policeman who was involved in shooting one of the women's brothers is on their trail. As the women add to the loot, their tastes and interests begin to change and their suspicions of each other increase on the way to a climactic robbery.Written by

It's being along time since I've seen a film that really took my breath away, but this shook me to my bones. What seems to start off as a stereotypical film about racial injustice, ends as a story of the highest calibre. The 4 leading ladies act to perfection, making the tragedy and heartbreak so real. If you don't cry at the end of this, I suggest you get out in the sunshine and thaw!
