Primary Settings:

The locals call the city airport "The Big Nest" and it’s looked at as a mad house to Sky and Kap. There’s no telling what crazy antics that will happen from day to day in the place to be. With the craziness provided by the airport managers, pilots, flight attendants, ticket agents, cab / limousine drivers, car rental agents, fellow skycaps, hotel shuttle drivers, reps and most of them are grade school friends or their cousins.

All have their own bizarre dreams, agendas and hustles, but because of Kap’s relationship with the Airport Chief, Kap’s seniority, aggressive influence and legendary grade school respect Kap and Sky have the airport operation and control of it on lock!

Nothing happens without their knowledge and say so. Every airport service is assigned by Kap and Sky. Because both Sky and Kap have been the longest employed employees there, they know every corner and activity in the airport like the back of their hands. They know and have relationships with the who’s who. They know who is flying and coming in on what. They know who the big tippers are and who are not. They know what is in what bag and how to loose it. They make good side money from the percentages they get by rewarding whoever they want with the assignment to certain flights and pick-ups.

The city hot spot / club where everybody goes for a great time is called "The Little Nest" because it’s where the airport employees go to hang out. Each night has a different event happening from "The Old School Jam", "Ladies Nite" to "Comedy Nite". Comedy night is where Sky reigns supreme and he usually packs the house out.

3. The real story begins: One night, Kap comes home from work more tired and worn than normal, just when he’s ready to sit down to watch TV he’s unusually greeted by Linda. Lovingly she announces that she’s pregnant and for the first time Kap is speechless. A very heartwarming conversation follows and Kap’s is changed within. Linda also informs him that because of her new and recent visits to church she has to change her ways and wants them to live right. Kap knows she’s serious and agrees to go to church the follow Sunday with her and because of a soul stirring, life changing sermon decides to try and change too.

He decides to stop cursing, drinking, flirting with other women and cheating people. When he announces this to all of his friends and fellow workers, they cannot believe their ears. The entire airport starts placing bets on how long it will last.

Sky and Tammy are shocked, but Sky is at first proud of his pal and they are supportive. However as Kap is on his quest for righteousness money gets tight, without the extra money from their past side hustles things get strange and it takes a toll on their friendship.

Suddenly one day a well dressed, bling- blinged-up stranger is instructed that Sky and Kap is his men to see for a job that needs to be done within the airport. A simple bag he has just needs to get from terminal A to terminal D safely and the stranger will pay big money for it to get done. When asked what’s in the bag, the stranger insists that’s it best they don’t know. However the temptation is strong and the offer get Kap thinking the way he use to think and how the money is enough for a fresh new start. Sky and Kap accept and now the craziness really begins!
