Sixteen-year-old Jimmy Lynch and another juvenile delinquent, Kevin, are able to avoid being sent to a youth facility, when they agree to go for a community mentoring program with a man named Duke, who just happens to run a barbershop. The two boys enter into the agreement with all the attitude you'd expect, and then, as time passes, they begin to learn some life lessons through the wisdom of the men who quietly mentor. Character after character walks through the door bringing with them the chance to explore the questions of manhood: drugs, hot babes, power, and strength of character. All the options are on the table for these two, as they watch and learn and listen. This is funny enough and true enough to entertain any young man and wise enough to satisfy his parents.
