Becoming another lost kid, beaten, pimped, and drugged, Jamy grows more introverted by the barrage of abuse until, in defense of others like himself, he finds a dark future as a gang leader, the Street Lord of the 42nd Neighborhood.

Jamy, a teen father, wants off the street for the sake of his son and agrees to become a 'mole' for the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) in exchange for freedom from prosecution.

Though freedom is at hand, he returns to the street to save the undercover agent he befriended.
