Lil B-Easy

After a Voodoo Priest cast a spell on ventriloquist doll, Lil B-Easy, he comes to life and grows with his human big brother, pulling pranks and causing mischief along the way.

Caleb Jackson, an 8-year-old socially awkward kid, lives with his single mother and 12-year-old sister, Deana. After receiving a ventriloquist doll from his dad for his 8th birthday, Caleb names him Lil B-Easy and spends all of his time with him, avoiding other kids. Caleb forms a rap duo with his doll, CJ and Lil B-Easy. While visiting the Carnival with his mother, sister, and sister’s friend, Ashley, Caleb crosses paths with a Voodoo Priest. The Voodoo Priest tells him he can breathe life into Lil B-Easy using a spell that he has performed numerous times. An ecstatic Caleb allows the Voodoo Priest to cast a spell on Lil B-Easy.

Caleb awakens the following morning to find Lil B-Easy missing. He walks into the bathroom and finds Lil B-Easy alive and sitting on the toilet. Mom and Deana awaken to toothpaste in their slippers and lip stick on Deana’s face. Caleb walks out into the hallway to an angry mom and Deana. He tells them that he didn’t do it, and Lil B-Easy is alive. They hear the toilet flush, and Lil B-Easy walks out into the hallway. Mom faints, and Deana runs from the house, screaming. The front of a Yahoo article reads, “8-year-oldsPuppet Doll comes to life. It’s a Miracle.” Caleb and Lil B-Easy grow together through elementary, junior high, and high school.

Ten years later: A 27-year-old Caleb gets awakened by a prank from Lil B-Easy, who has a strong social media following. Caleb has become increasingly frustrated with Lil B-Easy whose over the top antics have become an annoyance. Caleb now works at Artie’s Tech Repair as an I.T. service provider and computer programmer. In his free time, he works on his invention, a microprocessor, to navigate driverless vehicles.

Lil B-Easy has been living the casual life, jobless, smoking weed, and hanging out with two neighborhood hustlers, Hitman Heart and Gunner. Caleb rides Lil B-Easy about getting a job and growing up. Lil B-Easy is more than content on living the life of leisure.

Caleb has a pitch meeting with Driver’s Unlimited, who are interested in bringing him on board as a lead engineer. He has a thing for a pretty young professional, Erica, who works close to his job. Erica is classy and business savvy, but she’s dating Mark Goodrich, a professional football player. Caleb removes a virus from her computer just in time for a big meeting, and she invites him to lunch for coffee and conversation.

Caleb and Lil B-Easy come to a breaking point, and Lil B-Easy moves in with Hitman Hart and Gunner, who tell him that Caleb was too hard him, and they are his new brothers. Lil B-Easy lives the party life with the guys.

Caleb loses the position with Driver’s Unlimited to another candidate, and Erica stands him up after Mark Goodrich proposes to her. He’s down about everything that has transpired and goes to have a chat with his mom, who gives him some words of wisdom.

Hitman Hart and Gunner persuade Lil B-Easy to break into an old haunted manor owned by the Parisi Italian crime family to get a stash of money hidden in an upstairs bedroom. They tell Lil B-Easy that he will have to enter on his own because all the windows in the manor have alarms except a small window that only he can fit in leading into the basement that only he can fit through. Lil B-Easy reluctantly agrees and breaks into the manor. He finds the stash of money and receives a call from Faith while inside, a stripper asking for the cash Lil B-Easy owes her. While trying to exit the manor, he crosses paths with the ghostly woman who haunts the place. Lil B-Easy dives out the window, setting off the alarm and escapes with Hitman Hart and Gunner.

Carlino Parisi, the manor’s owner, uses his connections and tracks a call made inside at the time of the break-in. It registers back to Caleb, who gave Lil B-Easy the phone. They go in search of Caleb looking for some payback. They find Caleb and kidnap him.

Hitman Hart calls Lil B-Easy his secret weapon and plots another robbery. Lil B-Easy has had enough and tells the guys to go to hell. He goes back home and sees Carlino Parisi’s men kidnapping Caleb. Lil B-Easy goes back to Hitman Hart’s home and begins destroying the place with a hammer. Hitman Hart tells Lil B-Easy that they probably took Caleb to the Parisi’s Meat Warehouse, and he goes in search of him.

Carlino Parisi and his thugs threaten to cut off Caleb’s balls if he doesn’t give him the location of the money. Caleb realizes that Lil B-Easy stole the money and tells the guys that he lost his phone. Lil B-Easy comes to the rescue and saves Caleb.
