PLOT SUMMARY: Wes (10), has always looked up to his older brother Dre (13) and has always wanted to be included in his older brother’s group of friends. As a playful prank to try and scare his younger brother, Dre tries to coerce Wes into stealing some sodas and snacks at the local bodega. He hands Wes a toy gun to use in hopes to scare him from accepting the task. Wes doesn’t give in and soon both boys find themselves in front of the bodega. They enter the bodega and their nerves start to get unhinged when things turn terribly wrong as the simple prank turns deadly and the bodega owner accidentally shoots and kills Wes thinking that the toy gun was real.
