The Clan is disillusioned with life in the projects, and Bobby (Ashton Sanders, “Moonlight”) knows that success in the music industry could be their ticket to better lives. But getting the Clan members to drop everything for music isn’t easy. The resentment between Dennis (Siddiq Saunderson, “Messiah”), Sha (Shameik Moore, “Spider-Man: Intro The Spider-Verse”), Power (Marcus Callender, “Power”) and Divine (Julian Elijah Martinez, “Prodigal Son”) still runs deep, while the other Clan members struggle dealing with intercity life. This time around, Bobby is dedicated to authenticity and though he knows he can lead his crew through the challenges of the music business, the Clan’s fractures may prove too much to overcome.
