Storyline:The intelligent Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is about to graduate to college. His dream is to be accepted by the elite Harvard University. Not an easy task, because Malcolm lives in the Bottoms, a dangerous neighborhood in Inglewood, California. When Malcolm and his best friends Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) go to a party of drug dealer Dom (A $ ap Rocky) one night so that Malcolm can land with the pretty Nakia (Zoë Kravitz), fate takes its run. There is a police raid and Dom hides a lot of fabric in Malcom's backpack. He is forced to get rid of the stuff in order not to upset the ruthless drug boss Austin Jacoby (Roger Geunveur Smith). So for Malcolm and his friends begins a turbulent gauntlet on the edge of the law, which will shape them forever.
