Antwone Fisher, 25, is a gentle, soft-spoken African American seaman in the Navy. Unless he feels he's been disrespected--which prompts furious, violent outbursts that put him on the brink of a dishonorable discharge. Ordered to see a psychiatrist, eventually the story of his childhood in a foster home, where he was both beaten and sexually abused, comes out.

On Sunday nights they hang at the Cascade roller rink where the guys try to impress the girls with their latest moves. As these four friends prepare for life after high school, different challenges bring about turning points in each of their lives
