A Thug's Redemption


Anitbeet Productions and The Author Yani bring to you an Urban Tale filled with drama, love and suspense.  A Thug's Redemption tells the compelling story of one man's attempt to make amends for his wrong doings. After Jamal decides to take matters into his own hands by avenging his best friend's murder, he is forced into the street life, forever in debt to his cousin Samir, one of Philadelphia's biggest drug lords. After finding love, separating himself from the game, and turning his life around, fate comes into play when a desperate act by his younger brother Shawn brings back the haunting night from Jamal's past. Secrets are revealed, and Jamal is forced back into the street life to save his brother as well as himself. In this story about friendship, love, and the dangers of North Philly streets, Jamal will soon learn that mistakes are hard to clean up and they will cost him dearly in the end.
