Life can be hard, damn hear cruel, and sometimes it s hard to play with the cars you ve been dealt. Growing up in the ghetto can be hell; good or bad everybody has a story. Toni, is young and sexy, but her life story is limited with her mother s drug addiction and her older brother, Sheek, doing life in prison. She struggles day by day, stripping and sometimes doing more in underground clubs to support herself and trying to hold down her family. Toni eventually befriends a rich, pretty boy from Long Island, whose life was sheltered from poverty since the day he was born. But when he meets Toni, their lives change, as they teach each other how to live and grown, and school each other about the opposite worlds they live and come from. But conflicts erupts in the ghetto. Toni s abusive and gangster boyfriend, Tec, fuels a deadly drug war with Chills, a well-known kingpin harboring most of Coney Island territory./ Greed, rage and envy instills in Tec, and the body count rises. A drug war ensues as animosity and rage erect between the two thugs, making life in Coney Island a living hell for some and Ghetto Heaven for others.
