In 1957, four-year-old Brett is confronted with his fathers misdeeds. When Bretts father, Burt, has an affair with a police officers wife, Officer Benny Garcia vows to return the favor and destroy Burt and his family. After moving to another district in Detroit to escape Garcias wrath, Brett is accepted to Burton Elementary, a prestigious school for gifted children. The cop is relentless, however, and guns down and kills Bretts second-grade classmate and attempts to frame Brett for his murder. The Detroit police uncover the true perpetrator and reveal Garcia as the criminal. Brett learns Garcia is not just a cop but a federal agent operating with several accomplices. Brett uncovers a plot to kill President Kennedy and the only hope to bring the rogue agents to justice is to memorize the crimes the team commits with his photographic memory. Soon after Brett begins his quest, hes stabbed by a local gang. His mothers father, a highly skilled marksman, takes Brett down south for gun training to learn to defend his family. In a short time, Brett becomes skilled and deadly with a hand gun, and the war in the Cass Corridor is on.

Welcome to the Cass Corridor, an area geographically bound by freeways and major thoroughfares, yet boundless in its rich history and influence. Since the French established the sleepy ribbon farms in the 1700s, the Cass Corridor has experienced a fascinating evolution. Home to affluent gentry in the Victorian era, the area became the hub for automotive parts suppliers, film distribution, and pharmaceuticals at the turn of the 20th century. The interwar period saw the area transition to a working-class neighborhood that descended into a slum. The Cass Corridor, however, redefined itself, Detroit, and the nation as a home to the counterculture movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The corridor has long been a cradle of creativity that many renowned personalities called home, including Charles Lindbergh, Gilda Radner, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Marcus Belgrave, and others.
