Rucker plays the role of a handsome, charismatic Darryl Graham, the newest tenant in a Jamaica, Queens apartment building. Darryl quickly attracts the lustful attention of the female tenants, subsequently causing violent encounters with their spouses. Connie (Brely Evans), an unhappy wife, turns to Daryl for help losing weight, hoping that will fix her marriage. But when Daryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether her marriage is worth saving. Connie's husband (Christian Keyes), cares more about making money than being affectionate to his wife. That is, until he notices how much time his wife starts to spend with Darryl. Benny (Robert Ri’chard), a spoiled teenager raised by his single father, sees Darryl as a cool role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he's ever known to be true. Daryl's first love, Krystal (Nafessa Williams), wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet, Darryl’s reemergence into her life ruins what was once a happy home. To Avery (Anthony Montgomery ), everything seems to be going well for the tenants. This quickly changes when someone is murdered, making every tenant a prime suspect in an intense investigation.
The film’s fatal attraction story portrays the intertwining encounters of a group of strangers who are conflicted with dissatisfaction in their individual situations and the idea that a new friendly face can solve their problems.
The film’s all-star cast includes Lamman Rucker, Christian Keyes, Brely Evans, Anthony Montgomery, Robert Ri'chard, DB Woodside, Kellita Smith, James Black, Olivia Longott, Trisha Mann, with Jackee Harry, Marla Gibbs and Billy Dee Williams.
