All events in the film take place on a Friday afternoon in Brooklyn. The lives of nineteen people criss-cross, leading unnoticed to a spiral climax. A mother is looking for her son. A husband is looking for heroin. A mentally-disturbed patient has lost his medicines. A juggler is looking for a job. A car thief and his friend try to sell a huge amount of cocaine. A drugdealer is looking for his lost cocaine. An investor and his lawyer try to reclaim badly-invested money. A boy waits for his birthday party. His friend is looking for a present. A trader in stolen cars worries about a lost car. A heroin dealer spoils her client. A young mother tries to get back her former job in prostitution. A female pimp tries to regain the love of her former girlfriend. Two undercover cops try to set up a sham drug deal. Director Cinque Lee wrote the script to have something to do in the sweltering heat of Brooklyn in summer. The film was rehearsed in a month and shot in ten days with non-professional actors. Some sequences comprise only static shots giving the film a kind of 'vérité' character.
