Plot Summary
When ex-Black Panther Marcus (Anthony Mackie) returns to Philadelphia for the funeral of his father, he knows it's not going to be an easy visit. Many of his old radical friends, including "DoRight" Miller (Jamie Hector), still believe that Marcus was responsible for the death of a Panther leader right before he took off. While trying to convince everyone he's not a snitch, Marcus rekindles his relationship with Patricia (Kerry Washington), the widow of the slain leader.
