    Plot: Based on the life of drug-kingpin-turned-informant, Frank Lucas, the movie follows him as he grew up in segregated North Carolina where he watched as his cousin was shot by the Ku Klux Klan for merely looking at a white girl. He eventually made his way to Harlem where he became a heroin kingpin by travelling to Asia's Golden Triangle to make connections, shipping heroin back to the US in the coffins of soldiers killed in Vietnam. He soon made over a million dollars a day in drug sales. Lucas was shadowed by lawman Richie Roberts, who finally helped bring the kingpin to justice. The two then worked together to expose the crooked cops and foreign nationals who made importing heroin so easy.
