Movie Story: In SHAFT, a flashback to 1989 reveals that John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson) once had a wife, Maya (Regina Hall), and an infant son. In order to keep them safe from a dangerous drug lord, he needed to remove himself from their lives. Years later, that son, J.J. (Jessie T. Usher), has grown up to become an FBI data analyst. When J.J.’s best friend turns up dead, J.J. suspects foul play and contacts his father for help. The trail leads right back to that same drug lord, Gordito (Isaach De Bankolé) — but just when J.J. finds proof, the bad guys kidnap Sasha (Alexandra Shipp), the woman he loves. Before Shaft and son head into the final showdown, they decide to enlist a little help from the original (Richard Roundtree). Can three generations of Shafts finally put an end to the trouble?
