The Marcus Stukes-directed short film finds Dustin Mooney, Jr. (Los) seated inside his parked vehicle. He’s waiting for Maria Cruz (Shorty) at Dyckman Street Station in New York City. She enters his vehicle, and shortly afterward, Los drives away with Shorty riding shotgun.

The following scene finds them seated inside a restaurant, across the table from Robert House (Duke), a drug dealer. Los and Duke discuss moving narcotics while Shorty listens. After a detailed plan is hatched, both parties go their separate ways.

Later that evening, Los meets the detective by the bridge. DT Rose reveals that the feds snatched Shorty and now she’s cooperating with them. Los feels terrible because this has happened to him before. Not too long ago, he had to eliminate an ex-comrade of his, and he’s been walking around with that guilt ever since. Now, he has to do it all over again, but this time, to the woman he wants to marry.

The next day, Los drives Shorty to her destination. When she exits the vehicle, tears run down Los’ troubled face as he looks at the 5-carat diamond ring that he never showed to Shorty. Outside the vehicle, Shorty doesn’t know that JR is behind her brandishing a loaded weapon. She opens the car trunk and that’s the last thing she remembers doing.
