Endangered Species" follows the life of Mercy living in the Imperial Courts housing projects in Watts, Ca. examining questions of anger, relationships, violence, the justice system and a gang truce?

Mercy is faced with the tough decision of revenge when his brother Parker is killed. Parker is the "Lady's Man" and well-known hustler in the community. As a teenager, Mercy was able to avoid the violence, drugs of any kind, and the murderous crime rate that surrounds him in his environment. He also maintains a strong sense of pride and a code of honor. Mercy childhood friends Hakeem, Juan and Duke all support him, no matter what the outcome.
