Now as adults, the brothers are seeking to right the wrongs perpetrated by their father KNIGHT (Shaun Mixon) by assembling their own four-member crew of gun runners, “THE STRAP SET.
The team is led by the eldest brother Rhyis. His goal is to earn enough capital and power in America to return to Haiti and reclaim his birth rite. Khalil, the younger brother, handles the lion’s share of sales and distribution to foreign buyers. GRIMM (Sean A. Riggs) handles heavy artillery and deals with local distributors and ZHO (Johnathan McDaniel) is a lethal sharp shooter.

When the rules of the underworld are broken, these four men inflict punishment to the letter. Heavily armed with automatic weapons, lethal fighting skills, and the strategies of war… “The Strap Set” are locked, loaded, and intent on returning victorious to the docks of Port-Au-Prince Haiti
