An award-winning Earl Stone–who has clocked 80 and still counting–is a well known warrior who has fought in the Korean war while in Peoria, Illinois. He is a lover of flowers and he therefore becomes an horticulturist. He was faced financial downfall and his family have moved away from him due to this. Because he was desperately in need for money, he ventured into cocaine transportation for some drug barons and cartels whom are from Mexico. Due to the less suspicion he garners for his age and race and especially his near clean slate of criminal profile background and also to his astute followership of the various driving laws, Earl becomes the man to trust with loads of humongous drugs and equally huge money. Having earned some amount from this business, he purchased a brand new truck and layoff his financial troubles. He also sponsored his grand-daughter's studies and subsequently, her wedding ceremony. So sooner than expected, he became amiable friends with folks at the cartel and he was christened ‘Tata’ which simply refers to ‘Grandfather’.
However, it is pertinent to note that a Drug Enforcement Administration is fast slimming down on the amount of packages the cartel delivers to Chicago. This prompts the building up of tension, most notably when a lieutenant kills the boss and consequently requests that Earl be left under a very strict surveillance and tight control. While amidst the shipping of a huge cocaine deal, Earl learn that his ex-wife is seriously ill. This makes him abandon the delivery of the drugs as he postponed it so that he'll be given the avenue and chance to reconcile with his ex just before she dies. This unfortunately provoked the leadership of the cartel. Earl later returns to the delivery job but the Drug Enforcement Administration and the cartel leaders themselves, gave him a very close marking by putting him on the radar.
The enforcers at the cartel caught up with him and threatens him before beating him up. Although they stopped immediately after getting to know about the death of his wife. As he forges ahead and moved apath the dropping point, he was nicked by the agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Earl was arraigned in the court of law where he pleads guilty to every other charges lampooned on him. He eventually got sentenced to prison, although, his family became quite affectionate and showed him love and support. While in prison, Earl returns to his work as an horticulturist.
