Roy "Cootie" Hodges, an Old School pimp and thug, has served 10 years out of a 15-year sentence for the murder of a drug dealer. In the Hood, all of the young pimps remembered him: "The Baron." He was known for his style, elegance, street wisdom and the decent treatment of his women. Once released, Cootie re-establishes old ties and friendships by going back to the old neighborhood, hanging out at the old bars and lounges, number spots, jazz clubs, and gambling parlors. One of the young, dynamic pimps, Silky knows a good thing when he sees it. Cootie tells Silky about his missing daughter, her time with the freakish pimp and the action in the hot sheet hotels and the four stars. Silky runs with Cootie past all of the major strolls in the city in seach of Cootie’s daughter.
