Crime thriller, directed by local filmmaker Will Mauricette.
Fed up with tirelessly working day in and day out just to provide for their families and have nothing to show for it, two friends, CJ and Speedy, begin to explore different ways to bring in more money and bring it in quickly. After a failed attempt, a desperate CJ becomes increasingly more motivated to switch their strategy up, even if it becomes unlawful and may put one of their lives in jeopardy. With CJ and Speedy now rolling in cash flow, a well-known affiliated gang member Brickz starts to become envious seeing one’s success that isn’t his own. In this fast-paced, drama-filled thriller, gang member Brickz will try to stop them by any means necessary. In a series of tragic events, CJ and Speedy realize that escaping this life they are now invested in won’t be that easy.
