This is a story about a brother who has been overlooked his entire life and is fed up. Calvin has lived in his older brother’s shadow for as long as he can remember. Unlike Jordan, he is not the captain of the basketball team. He is not the valedictorian. He is not the senior class president. He is not the yearbook’s “Most Likely To Become Famous.”

No one notices Calvin, no even cares about him. Everyone’s too busy focusing on Jordan that they don’t realize how their indifference to Calvin is slowly burning him. Calvin decides to burn them all back before they completely extinguish his spirit.
