Johnny was raised in the Larchwood Public Housing projects of Southwest Philadelphia in the 1980s and 90s. All he wants to do is use his God-given intellect to become a successful businessman and escape poverty. However, it seems most people he encounters fight him tooth-and-nail in his journey to greatness.
Johnny and his cousins, Kobe and Tamir, are affected in different ways by what they experience when dealing with their relatively young, somewhat reckless caregivers. They are exposed to drugs, extreme violence and alternative forms of spirituality one minute; but are traveling and rubbing shoulders with celebrities and politicians the next.
The three boys were born with great gifts which will shape the course of their lives. Unfortunately, they also have trauma to bear, some of which they are subjected to by their own Uncle Darien, who claims Johnny is his “Illuminati sacrifice.”
Will Johnny and his cousins survive their trials long enough to achieve greatness without succumbing to the dark forces surrounding them? Dive into “The Chosen Ones,” a retelling of true events, to find the answer to that question, and so much more!
