: For a sheltered mama's boy like Demarcus, everything is coming up roses until his plans to go to college are derailed by a trip to state prison. There he must make a choice: be a man--or be a victim. Upon his release, Demarcus tries to get his life back on track, but his felony conviction leaves him little other choice than to take to the streets, where he gets caught up in selling heroin, known on the streets as Dog Food. When all hell breaks loose between the major dealers in Memphis over the city's heroin distribution, Demarcus finds himself on the losing side of a bloody drug war. As he prepares for the showdown with his opposition, he begins to uncover truths about his past, including what happened that fateful night of his arrest.
