Delman Moore's Steppin Back takes place on a University campus and looks at the subculture of African-American Greek fraternity life. Early in the film a student commits suicide. This triggers the many Black fraternities on campus to take a look at what sort of behavior they are encouraging in their members. The houses organize a Step-show in order to do some good in the wake of the tragedy. The film touches upon the history of Black fraternities in the United States.
