The film is an adaptation that combines William Shakespeare's plays Henry IV, Part 1 and Henry IV, Part 2 and sets them in contemporary Los Angeles. The screenplay was adapted by Dr. Ayanna Thompson, Professor of English at Arizona State University, retaining Shakespeare's original language. According to Lennix, the film is told "from the perspective of black people, acted primarily by black people, and it’s from the black point of view"; he nevertheless describes Shakespeare's themes, and the film's, as "universal". Thompson describes the script as being "about the politics and political manoeuvring within the African-American community".

A stirring story about regret, love, and second chances, woven together in a vignette style. The story follows five very different people who sit at a crisis point in their lives—their desires clouded by fear, duty, tragedy, and regret. As each story unfolds, the characters struggle to find the courage to live for themselves, to reclaim the relationships they have lost along the way, and to make time for the things that really matter.

Flocon de Neige est l'unique gorille albinos au monde : à ce titre, il est le centre de l'attention des touristes dans le zoo où il réside. Mais il n'est pas aimé par les autres gorilles et souffre de sa particularité. Flocon a heureusement plusieurs amis : Ailur, une panthère noire bouddhiste réincarnée dans le corps d'un panda rouge, et Paula (Claudia Abate), une gentille petite fille. Avec leur complicité, il décide de s'échapper du zoo et d'aller trouver la Sorcière du Nord (Elsa Pataky), qui fait partie de l'équipe du cirque voisin, dans l'espoir qu'elle pourra l'aider à devenir un gorille normal. Mais une fois échappés du zoo, les trois amis sont confrontés à Thomas, un homme superstitieux et méchant persuadé que la dépouille de Flocon lui fournirait le parfait porte-bonheur.
