Description: Set in the mid 1980s, Ace is a Harlem kid working in a dry cleaning store and trying to stay on the straight-and-narrow path. The harder Ace works for his modest salary, the harder he finds it to watch his drug-dealing friends, especially his best friend Mitch, come around draped in pricey cars, furs, gold chains and women. Taking their cues from their favorite move, Scarface, these hustlers live loud, dangerous, colorful lives and project an aura of power and respect that makes them the toast of Harlem. So when destiny seems to drop a rock of cocaine in Ace's lap, he decides to enter the drug trade, but on his own terms: he wants to do it low-key and all business. He connects with a mysterious distributor named Lulu and quickly develops the ways of a shrewd entrepreneur. When Mitch is suddenly sent to jail, Ace becomes the heir apparent to his kingdom. Soon, he has built a multi-million dollar empire while staying below the radar of law enforcement and rival dealers. Ace is flying high, but he's about to take a tremendous fall as Mitch hits the street again with his new partner Rico and the furor that surrounds them sparks an all-out war for territory.
