Inside of a hospital room, Luther Cornwell tearfully watched as his dying wife Betty Jean closes her eyes for the last time. Unfortunately, Luther is now forced to raise his five young sons all alone.

 After his wife's funeral, Luther wants a brand new start for himself and his sons.
The first thing Luther does is change their last names from Cornwell to Dynasty.
Luther then decides to pack up and move his family from the poor southern town of Jackson, Mississippi, to the fast-paced, violent city of Philadelphia.

Life in Philly is a lot harder than Luther had anticipated. However, he is determined to see his family triumph through all the pain and suffering, even if he must kill for their survival or die for their success!
