Jack, a native New York bruiser, is fed up with living in the dregs of a drug-addled Alphabet City where his neighbors are insane shut-ins and his bicycle is always getting stolen. He escapes from Manhattan to Brooklyn to make a fresh start in Carroll Gardens, only to face a new strain of street logic--where most everything he encounters is not as it seems. Jack steps in the hazing of eons-old rituals as a polarized community begrudgingly changes hands between tribes. With STREET CODE, Dean Haspiel returns to his semi-autobiographical roots and explores the emotional truths between prime and primate.
