Synopsis

1992: Brothers Eli and Daniel sell shoes in South Central L.A., enduring the daily disses for their Asian looks. They hang out with 11-year-old orphan Camille and dream of making the big time – and the Angelenos are wont to do. But then the riots break out. As the inferno approaches their shoe store, they have to come to terms with the reality around them.
