Tells the story of broken dreams, drug dealers, dirty cops, and
government complicity. More compelling than fiction, it's the real story
behind America's war on drugs. This documentary by award-winning
filmmaker Marc Levin (SLAM, Mr. Untouchable, Brick City)
exposes how the infiltration of crack cocaine destroyed inner-city
neighborhoods across the country. At the center of it all is the rise,
fall and redemption of "Freeway" Rick Ross, a street hustler who became
the King of Crack, and journalist Gary Webb, who broke the story of the
CIA's complicity in the drug war.
