Wounded in the war, Tommy Donahue and DD Davis return home from Iraq to North Philadelphia slum neighborhood. Tommy returns home to his wife, whom he abandoned while she was pregnant.

DD faces the pressure to save his younger brother, James, from becoming a victim of the streets. Meanwhile their oldest brother, Darnell, has risen to become the neighborhood kingpin. The two find themselves trapped in the same slums they joined the military to escape from. As they battle to save the lives of their loved ones the old neighborhood becomes a different kind of war, their families become entangled in a web of crime and corruption so thick, murder becomes their only option.
