Synopsis

Fontaine can always tell when something isn’t right. He just doesn’t quite feel like himself anymore. Slowly, his suspicions come to light and illuminate a mystery that will see him facing a wildly racist governmental conspiracy. He’s not alone in the sinister situation, even if he wants to be. Whether he likes it or not his companions, Yo-Yo and Slick Charles, are along for the ride, giving the caper some character and style. The unlikely sleuths are set to uncover the most unnatural and unnerving experiments on African-Americans. They can’t just stand by and watch it happen, the three have to take action against these brutish schemes. The only way to end the tortuous testing is to take down the whole corrupt regime and in the process take a little revenge.
