Justice knows how it can go down for African American young men, and it isn't always fair. Still, he's pretty sure living on the straight and narrow will keep him safe. Pining over his crush Ebony, writing rap lyrics, and looking forward to chess games in the park, Justice never imagines he could be labeled a criminal. Then his teacher's phone and wallet are stolen, and Justice finds himself at the center of the investigation. Can Justice prove he's innocent, or will he be wrongly convicted of a crime he never committed?
