Synopsis

This is the original crime reality film. Over a thirty-six year period, it follows Rob, Freddie, and Deliris on a relentless ride through the streets and prisons of Newark, New Jersey’s largest city. Warning. This is not filtered. You are there... and will experience the violence, pain, love, courage, redemption, and heroism... of the desperate fight to survive the deadliest enemy ever to attack America.
All our wars combined have produced a million deaths. In the four decades of this film.... drugs killed over five million Americans. Life of Crime takes you into the trenches of our greatest bloodiest battlefield.

Director’s Statement

There have been more deaths and casualties from our futile War on Drugs than from all our wars combined. The three heroes of this film were my friends. They paid with their lives for our failures.
