An urban tale about 8 guys, half a mil, a hearse, a cadaver, 2 kidneys, a lot of cocaine, and a little mistaken identity.

Two struggling black Los Angeles medical assistants think they've encountered great luck when they are hired to deliver some black-market human body parts (kidneys) to a wealthy and needy U.S. Senator. But another criminal drop-off - the delivery of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of high-grade cocaine - has been scheduled for that same night and same location. Neither set of drop-off men, nor buyers, knows with certainty the physical appearance of their contacts other than their race. And inevitably, all hell ensues! Our two young heroes think they have a plan to outsmart the crooks and get ALL the cash for themselves... But the Columbians, the mobsters and the Senator have more sinister plans of their own. Our friends soon discover that they are as expendable as the "gristle" on a chicken bone... and they'll have to think quickly and move even faster if they are going to survive the night! The Gristle is a powerful Urban comedic drama about racial identity. Featuring a slamming music soundtrack and a great cast. A movie that tells it like it is.
