One thing about life is that you have to play whatever hand you’ve been dealt. One Thing about Life tells the story of two childhood friends – Dap and Bo – as they navigate college life in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dap is fatherless and virtually motherless. He’s a hustler though, and his resourcefulness always helps him keep his head above water. However, will Dap’s cleverness save him from the danger that is breathing down his neck this time? And can this young man, who seems to be a thug, let his guard down enough to find love? Although sheltered, Bo is the levelheaded member of the duo. This trait, along with his kindness, has worked well for him as he’s pursued excellence in the classroom and on the college football field. But being nice may be what lands Bo in a snake’s nest of trouble and ruin his chances at a starting spot on a world-renowned Division I defense. As the young men from opposite sides of the track make life and death decisions, Dap and Bo encounter people and situations that can take them out of their respective games forever.
