Danny Hartwell (Hawthorne James), formerly chief of police of police of Flint Michigan, is released from prison, and he has problems adjusting to life outside - and it's not that all that much has changed, after all he has been in for no more than 14 months, and not even the Flint water crisis has been resolved in the meantime, but now he's not chief anymore, and his family has been evicted from their nice house and live in a crammed apartment. What's worse, while he can't hold a job as security guard which he thinks beneath him, his daughter Destiny (Sirelle Wilkerson) is the breadwinner of the family, working as a stripper - much to the dismay of her dad, but why would she care, she hates him anyways ever since he left her terminally ill mother for a younger woman, Poppy (Erica Peeples). Though Poppy's not that interested in Danny anymore either, having long embarked on an affair with police Lt. Potts (King Wesley), one of Danny's footsoldiers back in the day but now outranking him by far. There's also Danny's other daughter, Chastity (Tecoya Harris), who had gone to college, but in Flint she can't even hold a job as a waitress because she won't do her boss any "favours". And the "nice guy" (Orlando Peay) she goes out for a bit proves to be a philanderer who has slept both with her sister and her sister's best friend (Tory Monay). So it's not the best of worlds Danny has returned to - but when his half brother Clyde (Henry Clay) dies from chronic lead poisoning as he outright denied the Flint water crisis, things come to a turning point for everyone involved ...

 

A very compelling family saga that works quite so well because it doesn't over-burden its net of narratives with an over-reliance on its main theme but really does give the stories and their character plenty of space to breathe and develop, and allows them to grow together or apart (whichever the separate stories need) in a natural way. And a subtle enough direction and a very competent cast playing very relatable characters see to it that the film flows very nicely and entertains despite its somewhat heavy themes.
