For two brothers, trouble is a way of life
Written, produced and directed by veteran guerrilla filmmaker Parris Reaves,
When Thugs Cry tells the story of two brothers making the transistion from
Alabama's home prairie to Chicago's backstabbing asphalt plains with a prolific
output of rap music that would take them beyond ghetto celebrity to a major record deal.
That collective ambition is obstructed by sibling rivalry primarily influenced by the brothers' attempts
to liberate thier mother from drug addiction, exasperating discord with spouses, the deceit and betrayal of colleagues.
