A richly literate film noir about King David (DMX), a hard-boiled, stylish criminal who returns to his hometown seeking redemption but finding only violent death. But he did not die alone...King David's final moments are spent with Paul (David Arquette
), an aspiring journalist who knew him just a few minutes but upon whose life he would forever have an impact. King David -- half preacher, half Satan, and all street smarts -- had recorded the story of his exploits on audiotape, leaving behind an often-poetic sermon on villainy and its consequences. The tapes reveal that the cycle of violence and retribution his actions have spawned have come back on him full circle, as he suspected they might all along...
Based on cult novelist Donald Goines' novel of the same name.
