Juice is a crime/drama about four inner-city teens in Harlem who get caught up in the pursuit of power and happiness, which they refer to as 'the juice'. Bishop, Q, Raheem and Steel are four friends who spend their days skipping school, getting in to fights and casually shoplifting. The only member of the group who has plans for the future is Q, who dreams of becoming a DJ. One day Bishop happens to see James Cagney in the movie White Heat and the film inspires him to buy a gun. His plan is to rob a corner store and split the money between him and his friends. Everyone goes along with the plan except for Q, who is competing that night in a DJ contest, in which he is a rousing success, but he spies the stern faces of his friends through the cheering crowd and realizes that he has to go along with the robbery, which goes completely wrong
