Synopsis:
In this intriguing film, Evangelist Levi takes you on a journey through the lives of familiar characters in today's urban communities, but with an unfamiliar twist, illustrating with gritty reality the relevance of scripture to modern day life in the hood. In the end, The Players Manual is revealed to be the Holy Bible, and we present you with two tales from...The Player's Manual

Tale One: Romeo's Story
Romeo (Gadison: Ray, Dukes of Hazard) is a true player in his own mind. He juggles multiple women and stays on 22's. Life is a game, and Romeo knows how to play it. Or does he? Witness the triumphs and pitfalls of a "true player".

Tale Two: Success
Sam Lopez (Huerta) and his cousin Freddy (Rodriguez) are just tired of being broke. Thus begins Sam's journey to kingpin status, but is he smart enough to stay ahead of an obsessed FBI agent hot on his trail?

Dove Worldview:
This is a terrific drama regarding the message of a person living according to the Player's Manual, God's word, when it comes to dating and how the opposite sex is treated and is also about the decisions we make and the impact those decisions have.

So the DVD features two stories in it, the first one is about a hip young man named Romeo who deceives several women at the same time, making each one think they are the love of his life. He gets a few of them pregnant too. Eventually Romeo is caught in a trap and suffers the consequences including a woman he really cares about not wanting anything to do with him.

In the second story Sam Lopez is tired of being broke. He and cousin Freddy have had their fill of it. So Sam does whatever it takes to gain wealth, including becoming involved in drug trafficking. The day comes when Sam is finally tired of the life and what it has done to others, so he decides to go legitimate and open a real business, a restaurant. There is only one problem: his past catches up to him.

The content is strong in this film with sexual innuendos and situations, in addition to the drug-related theme but we can award it our Dove "Faith-Based" Seal with cautions for sexuality and drug use. In one uplifting scene a man explains to another man that he never had sexual relations until he married his wife and that the Bible says the marriage bed is undefiled. The stories in this movie are relevant and clearly show what reaping what one has sown means.
