Tera Wong delivers Chinese food for her mother's struggling restaurant located in a territory referred to as the "Low Bottoms" in south central Los Angeles. And everyone around her, including her unpredictable brother (Saren), are financially trapped in this crime and violence-ridden neighborhood. That is until Tera takes a job from a local drug lord, moving "product" inside her takeout food containers. With the cash rolling in, Tera intends to move the family restaurant to the suburbs and go clean. But after a series of tragic events, the dream that Tera built on a foundation of lies, may just crumble.
