DEALING... PRODUCING...
ALL IN A DAY'S WORK FOR A DRUGLORD.
OR IN HOLLYWOOD.

Ruined and on the lam, former drug kingpin Max Fisher stumbles upon the

Meanwhile, a certain femme fatale from his past is pursuing a comeback dream of her own, setting herself up in Hollywood as producer of a series based on her and Max's life story. But even in La-La Land, happy endings are hard to come by, especially with both the cops and your enemies in the drug trade coming after you...
