Djibril (Sy Assane), a young African immigrant, tries to make a life for himself in the streets of Harlem in New York. A struggling musician who hopes to one day score a record deal, he survives in the meantime by selling CDs on the street and taking on gigs as a courier with the help of his moped. When he meets the beautiful and vulnerable Trini (Sky Grey), he jeopardizes everything to save her from her squalid life.
