Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner) stars as a street magician who turns to dealing drugs in this urban drama co-starring Seychelle Gabriel.

"When Bo (Latimore), a handsome and gifted high school student, suddenly becomes the sole caretaker for his little sister, Tina (Storm Reid), he foregoes college to dedicate his talents to the craft of magic. He wows audiences as a street magician but still has to make ends meet, so he cleverly uses his skills to peddle drugs for the local dealer, Angelo (Dulé Hill). However when Bo falls for Holly (Gabriel), an adorable teenager in need of support, he decides to get out of the drug business, causing Angelo to threaten his family. Bo must now rely on his sleight of hand and brilliant mind to save the day." (Sundance Film Festival)
