Alec's mom has decided to stay in L.A. permanently to focus on her acting career. In addition to being angry, Alec is confused. Why would mom leave them for a dumb job so far away? To add to the confusion in his life, Alec is getting into trouble and being bullied, both at home and at school.

At school he and his brother Antoine get into an argument when Alec tells the Coach that it was Antoine and not him who knocked down their teammate. Later Alec ends up in his dad's office, after attempting to keep, Gilmer, the new kid in school from getting beat up by Tyrod and his gang. Alec gets mad with Gilmer when he does not say thank you for trying to help him or speak up for him when in his father's office.

On the home front, Alec is further frustrated by his mom's decision about her acting career and her new friends. And, he is being picked on by his jerk brother Antoine. His biggest challenge however is Little P, his second cousin who grandma brings to stay with them when she returns. Little P is a seventh grader and a bully. Along with Antoine, they rough up Alec at home, making things even harder for him. As Alec struggles through trying to do well in school, stay out of trouble and handle things going on at home, he needs help. When he goes to church on Easter Sunday, Alec hears a message that helps him look at his life a bit differently. He learns that the right way to deal with all that is going on in his life is to let his parents handle their situation, pray and trust God to him show him how and help him be his best.
