Baker Street is the home of A Butter – yes, that is what everyone calls him – a destitute young man from the inner city, someone who is used to picking pockets and begging on the street. He suddenly has to take responsibility for his five children when the mother becomes gravely ill. Thrust into unfamiliar territory where he is the primary caregiver for his children, A Butter has to dig deep to find a way to live up to his responsibilities and take care of his family. Determined to become a better father to his children, and partner to Shawna, their mother, he rises to the occasion and overcomes the many obstacles in his path on his way to a purpose-driven life. A Butter becomes a good example for the youth of Baker Street, showing them that with hard work and ambition, they can make it in life no matter the circumstances.
