Description: Estranged since the death of their parents years ago, twin brothers, Teshawn and Wesley Tucker, have taken radically different paths in life. Wes has become a minister in a Harlem gospel church while Te perpetrates the gangster lifestyle as hip-hop star Zulu. They are forced into reconciliation when Te flees from LA to his childhood home in Harlem to hide from his enraged record producer, Bull Sharky. Te tries to disappear in his preacher brother's world of the gospel church but becomes entrenched in the community and finds himself reconnecting with his past by becoming involved in the failing church choir. There, he is comforted by Aunt June, his loving surrogate mother with a musical past, and falls for Kia, a lovely churchgoer with her fingers on the pulse of the history, and magic, of Harlem . As Bull Sharky and his posse move east tracking Te down, Te and Wes must confront their own demons and attempt to work out their differences.
