FREEWAY: CRACK IN THE SYSTEM tells the story of Ross' life, broken dreams, drug dealers, dirty cops, and government complicity – more compelling than fiction; it's the real story behind America's drug war. This documentary by award-winning filmmaker Marc Levin (SLAM, Mr. Untouchable, and Brick City) exposes how the infiltration of crack cocaine destroyed inner-city neighborhoods across the country. At the center of it all is the rise, fall, and redemption of Freeway Rick Ross – a street hustler who became the King of Crack – and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gary Webb, who broke the story of the CIA's complicity in the drug war, and whose story is currently explored in the Focus Features film, Kill the Messenger, starring Jeremy Renner. Featuring exclusive interviews with Freeway Rick Ross (not to be confused with the rapper who took his name); Webb's source Coral Baca, and wife Susan Webb; former Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff Roberto Juarez; drug trafficker Julio Zavala and many more. Featuring the original title track “Crack in the System” by Snoop Dogg and Too $hort.

About Freeway Rick Ross
Once considered one of the country's top drug kingpins, Ricky Donnell Ross, better known as "Freeway" Rick Ross, has transformed his life and launched the Freeway Literacy Foundation (www.freewayliteracy.org).  Now, instead of building a massive multimillion dollar drug empire, that once earned him $3 million-dollars-per-day, this drug kingpin-turned-philanthropist has turned his life completely around, and he is busy spreading messages of literacy, anti-drug and anti-violence across the United States.
