NYC teen Steph is dead, presumably because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. After his funeral, his sister Jasmine and his two best friends, Jarell and Quadir, discover his stockpile of mix tapes and notebooks of lyrics in the shoeboxes under his bed. But they also find drugs, a gun, and the business card of a police sergeant, raising some questions about just what Steph was up to in the months before his death. Nevertheless, the three band together to produce and market Steph’s music, which involves pretending a new recording artist “The Architect” is alive and ready to sign a record deal, but the illusion that Steph is still breathing draws dangerous attention from several quarters.
