JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Usher), may be a cyber security expert with a
degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely
death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout
JJ’s youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft (Jackson) agrees to
help his progeny navigate Harlem’s heroin-infested underbelly. And while
JJ’s own FBI analyst’s badge may clash with his dad’s trademark leather
duster, there’s no denying family. Besides, Shaft’s got an agenda of his
own, and a score to settle that’s professional and personal.
