Their barbershop is in serious trouble. The have a huge depth. They have to work hard. The shop is a the south side of Chicago were there is gang violence reigning. It’s a more mature version this time.
In the first and second version, the main topic is about the importance of a community. In the third version, the group is getting more cohesive, more mature. They are grown up. They have to face real life problems in their fictional world.
Because of the violence, Ice Cube playing Calvin proposed to close the barbershop and move to the North side of Chicago where it’s safer. Calvin’s son is growing and he doesn’t want his son around that violence.
The only thing missing is the fact that the action isn’t really in accordance with the rhetoric and the repartee as well.
