Inspired by his childhood experiences, comedian Chris Rock narrates the hilarious, touching story of a teenager named Chris (Tyler James Williams) 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 (Tequan Richmond) and Tonya (Imani Hakim) in line at home. Meanwhile, Chris' dad Julius (Terry Crews), a true penny pincher, questions how his wife Rochelle (Tichina Arnold) takes care of the family's tight finances.
