Jay, a promising basketball player aspiring to make it to the NBA, becomes a beacon of hope for his grandmother and a potential escape from their harsh reality. However, the charismatic yet troubled Eddie, deeply entwined in the world of street crime, casts a shadow over Jay’s future.

Fly plays the part of 4-Fingaz, a young street hood with a penchant for thievery. Former NBA player Jarnell Stokes wrote the script and will produce alongside Rob Goodrich and Jason Armstrong of Walk Like A Duck Entertainment, with Henry Penzi and Isaiah Stokes of Stoked Bros. serving as executive producers.

“D.C. is an incredibly talented and multifaceted celebrity who continues to captivate audiences with his wit, humor, charm, and ability to connect with people from all walks of life,” said Stokes in a statement on his casting. “I’m so excited to have DC as part of this tremendously talented group of actors who will help bring this project to life. He never fails to entertain and leave a lasting impression on his fans. His performance in this film will be no different.”

He also previously spoke on his excitement about the project, stating, “This film is a heart-pounding journey through the world of streetball, exploring themes of family, ambition, and the moral complexities of urban life. It tells the story of navigating a treacherous path, an unfortunate reality for far too many young boys in our urban communities.”

Producers Rob Goodrich and Jason Armstrong of Walk Like A Duck Entertainment shared their enthusiasm for the script’s terrifying plausibility. Fox Rothschild, represented by Vivica A. Fox, added, “I’m so proud to have the opportunity to work on such a meaningful film with an incredibly passionate group of people. I’m excited for ‘Break the Cycle’ and the impact I truly believe it will have.”
