Tony was selling candy and gum in eighth grade when strangers approached him and gave him a bag of rolled “joints” to sell. From there he became a major dealer, importing marijuana from the Mexican Cartel in Texas up to the Northeast and selling cocaine and, occasionally, heroine. In this biographical documentary, Tony discusses his life in “the life,” it’s effects on him, his friends and his family. Funny, harrowing and at times tragic, the film captures its subject’s larger than life personality and his cautionary tale of a life in the fast lane.
