Moses Stanton owns a grocery store in Oakland, CA. Moses is a pillar of the community even if he doesn't make enough profit to expand his store. He would rather help his friends and neighbors in times of crisis by providing free groceries than to take the money for himself.
Enter Malik. An energized newcomer to the neighborhood looking for a place to sell his baked goods. Naturally, Stanton's is a perfect fit. But there's something just a bit off with Malik.
Claire is a young and hopeful 20-something working toward a future in education. She is Moses' daughter, but she doesn't know it. She was allowed to grow up thinking he was just a family friend. Claire likes Malik, but he ends up being much more than the positive spiritual leader that he presents himself to be. Yes, that equals bad. And when Moses finds out the truth, things get bad indeed.
