When dangerous street thug James "Animal" Allen (Ving Rhames) is sent to prison, he continues his violent ways working for fellow inmate Kassada (Chazz Palminteri). This changes after Animal encounters Berwell (Jim Brown), a revolutionary who introduces him to the writings of Malcolm X. Animal reforms, realizing that murder and crime are destroying his community. After Animal is released, he goes home to find his son, Darius (Terrence Dashon Howard), involved in gang activity just like he was.
