End of the Road follows recent widow Brenda (Queen Latifah), a protective mother/big sister doing her best to keep a roof above her family’s head after the sudden passing of her husband. Brenda decides it’s best to take her brother Reggie (Ludacris), her son Cam (Shaun Dixon), and her daughter Kelly (Mychala Faith Lee) to Houston, Texas, to start fresh.
While spending a night in a motel during their road trip, Brenda and Reggie overhear their neighbor getting beaten by an unknown assailant.
