James 'Animal' Allen (Ving Rhames) is a menace on the streets. His violence earns him the nickname 'Animal' and subsequently earns him a trip to prison. His son Darius (Terrence Howard) is left parentless when his mother is killed to avenge 'Animal' Allen's exploits on the street.

Inside, 'Animal' undergoes many changes; as he first starts by being a muscle-man for the prison kingpin (Chazz Palminteri), until he discovers that the killer of Darius' mom is in the same prison and opts to smash his face in against the kingpin's orders. Now deserted by his former posse, Allen goes through another change as he starts to learn about African-American history and political figures, leaving prison a different man, to the disappointment of his now criminal son.
