With special guests! Blurring the line between documentary and fiction, Welcome to Pine Hill follows the daily struggles of Shannon (or Abu, as he’s sometimes called). Haunted by his past of selling drugs, committing crimes, and engaging in other various illegal activities, he’s trying to cultivate a future while doing his best to stay on the correct side of what’s right. Staying on the righteous path is hard, though. Having left the hood life behind, Shannon now works at an insurance claims company in midtown Manhattan, a typical desk job, but one that involves working with difficult people. By night he’s a bouncer in a bar and often has to deal physically with troublemakers. But when Shannon receives a grim medical diagnosis, he sets out to make peace with those around him and in turn find his own peace beyond the cacophony of New York City.
