The Corner tells the true story of men, women and children living amid the open-air drug markets of West Baltimore.

It chronicles a year in the lives of 15-year old DeAndre McCullough (Sean Nelson), his mother Fran Boyd (Khandi Alexander), and his father Gary McCullough (T.K. Carter), as well as other addicts and low-level drug dealers caught up in the twin-engine economy of heroin and cocaine.
