Oscar Grant is a fairly typical 22-year-old man. On New Year's Eve, he awakes with a feeling of urgency. He wants to set his life right as best he can, becoming a better boyfriend and a better father and kicking some of the habits that have haunted him throughout his early adulthood. It's a time for fresh beginnings, but as he ventures through his day, he realizes turning things around will be more complicated than he realized. Everything that happens throughout the course of his day builds to a fateful encounter with the police as he is returning home from a party. While he is on the Bay Area Rapid Transit train, a fight breaks out, and his detainment by the cops has tragic results.
