Nineteen year-old Winston 'Tuff' Foshay - 320 pounds, new father to a baby boy he greets cheerfully with 'What up, littler nigger?', player-king of a motley crew in Spanish Harlem - is looking for a purpose in life, for the answer to his exasperated wife Yolanda's question, 'Winston, what you gonna do?' After narrowly escaping death - by fainting - in a drug deal gone bad, Tuff knows he needs to make some decisions, and soon. So when he is offered $20,000 to run for city council, he gamely embarks on one of the most outrageous campaigns in political history, one that changes both his vision of the world and his place in it.
