THE GHETTO BIRD’S NEST
On the gritty streets of Watts, Los Angeles, crime and violence are facts of life. Guns pierce the air like fireworks, and bullets mark the scorched pavement like silent tombstones. Dreams are born, raised, and cut down in a never-ending cycle of blood and despair. Watching it all unfold from the confines of a jail cell, Tyrone Walker – AKA OG Ryder Blak – steps up to make his move. Tyrone knows all the players and dealers in the neighborhood, and he’s committed to do whatever it takes to make sure he controls Watts and beyond. The cold bars of a jail cell are the only things keeping him from walking these mean streets. However, he knows he can take it all back from the pretenders who are happy to see him locked up. From the young foot soldiers to the battle-scarred OGs, The Nest – based on the YouTube series of the same name -- is an ultra-realistic look at the life of the inner city. Power, respect, and survival all collide in a volatile mix that’s about to explode. But more than a tale of violence and struggle, The Nest is a reflection of an America most people can’t see. In an alternative economy fueled by danger, the characters come to life with unique experiences and perspectives straight from reality. Despite it all, they bear the burden and try to find the light just like anyone else. And that’s where The Nest perfectly exemplifies the modern experience. These compelling characters may speak in a dialect unfamiliar to most people and have uncommon experiences, but underneath it all, they are a reflection of this vast nation -- the struggle to carry hope against strife, bravery against fear, and redemption against temptation. The Nest is really all about our attempts to find the light – and how, for some people, it can be a lifelong struggle.
