The Inheritance is the thrilling story of five ambitious cousins Golden Brooks (TV's Girlfriends), Rochelle Aytes (White Chicks), Darrin Dewitt Henson (TV's Soul Food, Stomp the Yard), D.B. Woodside (TV's 24, The Temptations), and Shawn Michael Howard set out on a family reunion during the dead of winter. The purpose of the retreat is to secure their inheritance, a fortune that dates all the way back to slavery. Upon their arrival, Uncle Melvin (Keith David - Crash) welcomes them with open arms, but warns them to respect their family traditions. During the weekend, as each of the cousins mysteriously disappear, they learn the truth about their family legacy, blood ancestry and the ultimate sacrifice they must make in exchange for their beloved inheritance.
