The history of the series The Chi Season 1 opens to the viewer an ordinary everyday life of the residents of the Afro-American quarters. At the center of events is a group of people living in the southern part of the city of Chicago. Unlike many other TV series, in this the authors show life of people of absolutely different ages. The main characters daily face some circumstances and difficulties, which should be experienced. Someone goes to school, where are many hooligans and someone goes to prison for a crime. In this dangerous area, police officers and white people rarely appear, as it is very risky. Here even pensioners at home have guns, and the vast majority of the population owns firearms. On the area there are robberies, drug traffic and firefights between bandits. But, at the same time, ordinary law-abiding people live here.
About all this tells the series on the example of several main characters. The teenager Kevin Hibbert should mature, forgetting about his childhood illusions and pranks. Brandon Mitchell is a dreamer who believes in his success, loves the girl Jerrika Boone and makes plans for the future. Emmett Latimore is a carefree teenager who plunges into difficult responsibility with the leadership of his mother Jada Ross. A vagrant Ronnie Mwine wishes to love and be loved, but there are doubts about probable success of his search. What the end will be in this story of several people, which seems, at first glance, very depressing and negative. Each hero has his own goal in life, his plans and dreams for the future. Characters are connected among themselves by some circumstances and series of coincidence. Not only adults, but also younger generation is tied in events. Each of them should cope with the problems and situations typical for their age. Watch the series The Chi Season 1 and plunge into the life of the main characters. Empathize and rejoice to their achievements, luck and pleasant moments of fate.
