Synopsis

As the path of four people criss-cross in and just outside the lobby of a high-scale apartment building in New York, their world views and ambitions clash and their mostly good intentions lead to bad results.
Jeff, a down-on-his-luck twenty-something, works as a security guard under William, a black man trying hard to establish himself as a respected leader. While both Jeff and William work at the building, the two police figures come there regularly as Bill, the veteran cop, visits his mistress, leaving Dawn, a rookie in her first police role, to wait for him in the lobby. William mentors Jeff, then asks for his help when his brother is accused of murder. Dawn first admires Bill; their relationship then sours as she learns more about him from Jeff. Bill offers to help William with his brother’s case. Jeff tries to win Dawn by doing the right thing, alienating her instead.
