Never Die Alone
Film by Ernest R. Dickerson (Action, Crime, Drama and Thriller) Miscellaneous Crew A film noir centering around a hard-boiled, stylish kingpin drug dealer, called King David, who returns to his hometown seeking redemption--but ends up only finding violent death.

The tapes reveal that the cycle of violence and retribution, which his actions have spawned, has come back to him, full circle, as he suspected they might all along. Written by Sujit R. Varma
