When irresponsible Travis (Torrence) generates a gambling debt with local hustler Tank (Tony Roberts), Travis’ brother, dependable Bryant (Harris), saves him. Bryant convinces Travis to leave the ‘hood and move in with him and wife Keisha (Sauda Johnson) in the suburbs of Long Island and take a job in Bryant’s business. But Travis has been bragging about how much money his brother has, and Tank and his associates Slow Mo (Kenny Williams) and Yella (Wil Sylvince) decide to kidnap Bryant’s wife for ransom. Despite Bryant’s pleas to let the police handle the matter, the streetwise Travis convinces him they should handle it themselves and, with the help of Travis’ comical Spanish-speaking friend Pancho (Rupeto Vanderpool), they go to rescue Keisha with hilarious results.
