The son of a ghetto-legend drug dealer, Jessie's life becomes impossible when his father becomes a snitch on his own drug crew. The mean streets of New York become meaner. Jessie, eleven, suffers the consequences of his father's deed. The boy, fatherless and victimized in the hood, turns to a life of violent crime and sex. Furious at his father, Jessie vows to seek revenge on anyone who is a snitch. The only real Love he shares is with his mother, Kathy, and a perverted relationship with his sister, Crystal. Jessie's friends are few, and even they should beware his temper-his rage is uncontainable. Just like a smoke detector, Jessie becomes a human snitch-detecting machine. The action is gripping as the final events are set in motion.
