In the lively, but desperate world of D.C.'s underbelly, filled with back-alley deals, gentrification clashes, and unexpected encounters between politicians and bottom-rung natives--all set against a soundscape of patois, street Spanish, and D.C. slang--a Black homeless man must hone his detective skills before he is punished for a brutal crime he didn't commit.
