Within those six years of her absence, Cat becomes a member of 'The Order,' a local gang. Living with his mother in a small apartment in the ghettos of Brooklyn, NY, he becomes obsessed with obtaining his vision of the American dream. He finds himself working in a supermarket for minimum wage and living with his mother after years of hardship. On his quest to become rich, Cat forms an 'Order' based on the gang he once belonged to in Jamaica.
