Storyline

In the era of gansta' rap wannabes, 19-year-old Jon's hopes of escaping the suburban ghetto get derailed when his drug-hustling childhood friend is incarcerated. Jon's loyalty challenges his morality as he ascends to benevolent 'kingpin of his neighborhood.' Jon develops a relationship with a beautiful recovering addict, AJ. Everything comes to a halt when Jon suffers a severe accident. Immobilized and separated from his phone, Jon's physical and emotional pain leads him to a new romance, with OxyContin. Unable to track down AJ, Jon falls into the deep hole of addiction. Caught between love and death, Jon tries to save everyone but himself. Written by TS

Dramatic and gripping
12 August 2019 | by pcbehnSee all my reviews

This film sets a new standard for down to earth realism and depiction of a nasty industry. The script, direction and acting are very professional. The story line is gripping and suspenseful. The only downside to this film is that it is not a show for everyone. It is gripping and pretty raw. /still well worth watching
