Spike Lee's graduate school thesis film centers on a young man named Zack (Monty Ross), who takes over as the manager of a Brooklyn barbershop after the former owner, Joe (Horace Long), is killed by local gangster Mr. Lovejoy (Tommy Hicks) for trying to skim money from the numbers racket he runs out of the store. Zack wants to legitimize the barbershop, but, when business slows down and Mr. Lovejoy comes calling, he's tempted to follow down the same path as his predecessor.
