A father's work is never really done; then again, neither is
After a few ups and downs, Alec "Smoke"
Avery and Anne Phillips have found a rhythm they can both
groove to, and they've made a love connection, which is just
fine with their sixteen-year-old son, Isaiah. Four years
later, when the grooving really starts to get good, the past
comes back to haunt them in ways they never imagined.
With Isaiah off at Kentucky State on a basketball
scholarship, out of harm's way and destined for the NBA,
Smoke and Anne think they can rest easy. But Isaiah's old
nemesis, Hood, isn't done wreaking havoc in Isaiah's life.
When he reaches out and touches Isaiah on campus and almost
destroys Isaiah's life, Smoke is forced to make his presence
known to the thug once again.
On the home front,
Smoke and Anne seem to be growing further and further apart
each day, partly because of Smoke's wandering ways and
partly because of Anne's emotional baggage. Things get tense
when Anne decides to do a little wandering of her own and
Smoke can't take the competition. And things go from bad to
worse when, in the midst of a heated lover's quarrel, Smoke
and Anne commit the perfect murder to save their son and
themselves. When the smoke clears, truths will have to be
told, and Anne will have to accept that she and Smoke are
more alike than she cares to admit.
