Jorge is a hardworking family man who’s just barely making ends meet. One day, he gets mugged by Kalule, a neighborhood delinquent. Jorge’s son decides to confront Kalule, only to get himself shot. Jorge’s son nearly dies and Kalule is sentenced to just two years and one day. When Kalule is released from prison, he goes on the warpath and terrorizes Jorge’s family. They look to the police for help, but are turned away. So Jorge decides to take justice into his own hands.
