Harlem - a mecca for black culture is now home to fancy eateries and a myriad of new residents. Napolean Pettigrew and his sons are die-hard Harlemites and feared property owners who hope to make a profit from this NEW Harlem. However, when they discover one of their properties is a real money-maker, everything they hold sacred—family, loyalty & community—falls apart. Sitting on a gold mine, the Pettigrew men are faced with the biggest decision in their lives—save or destroy the last untouched neighborhood in Harlem.
