Inspired by his childhood experiences, comedian Chris Rock narrates the hilarious, touching story of a teenager named Chris who struggles to cope with being uprooted to a new neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York and bused for the first time to a predominantly white middle school two hours away, while keeping his younger siblings Drew and Tonya in line at home. On his first day at school, Chris squares off against a bully and also makes a new friend, Greg. Meanwhile, Chris' dad Julius, a true penny pincher, questions how his wife Rochelle takes care of the family's tight finances.
