Gomez, a Miami-bred black-Cuban hustler believes in living by the 'Code' and
dying by the 'Code'. After serving a 5-year bid on drug-possession charges,
refusing the Fed's offers for him to become a snitch, Gomez gains an early
release due to the recommendations of a corrupted Correctional Officer that
he'd done favors for while in jail. Though Gomez' is true to his code of
loyalty to his friends and family, he returns to find that Doris, his wife
and baby-mama to his two kids hasn't been faithful to the code.
After his release, Gomez decides to relocate, setting
his sights on virgin drug territory. He meets Mark Goodman, a drug dealer
himself, who helps Gomez get back into the only game he's ever known. But
when the script gets flipped and it's Goodman needing Gomez, a double-cross
creates a deadly situation between the two. Donna Schultz a.k.a 'Iceburg' is
a real down-a** chick that falls for Gomez, but her wealthy father (Bruce)
wants her to have nothing to do with a hood-gangsta.
Bruce Schultz (Donna's dad), a Cadillac dealership
owner who long-ago turned his own dirty-money into a respectable business is
dead-set on making sure that his daughter will not be put in jeopardy by
Gomez' lifestyle and is willing to do anything to ensure it --even murder!
Having many connections, he enlists the help of Federal Agents and
LocalPolice to try take out Gomez - permanently!
Kiki, a life-long friend of Gomez from Miami, is
nicknamed 'The Friendly Ghost' because of his ability to get into cars,
houses and pockets undetected. A true believer of the code, Kiki's always
down for whatever - whenever.
Sexy Sandra Perez is a law-school student and in debt
to one of Gomez' boyz (Jimmy). She's forced to work as a phone-sex operator
for Jimmy as a way to repay her debt of school tuition. Gomez has a
soft-spot in his heart for Sandra and buys her freedom from Jimmy. Later,
when a botched-hit attempt on Gomez' life fails, Sandra lives up to the
code, as she's now an Assistant District Attorney with crucial information
on witness identity that she supplies to Gomez.
Gomez has vowed to never see the inside of a jail
again! When he learns of a former drug-associate who's considering becoming
an snitch for the Feds, putting in danger everything he's achieved, it's
time to live by the code, die by the code or kill by the code!
