Never Die Alone

Synopsis: 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. King David's final moments are spent with Paul, an aspiring journalist who knew him for just a few minutes; yet King David would forever more have an impact on Paul's life. Half preacher, half Satan, and all street smarts, King David had recorded the story of his exploits on audiotape, leaving behind an often-poetic sermon on villainy and its consequences. 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.

You see a champagne room|in this motherfucker?

Go to the toilet,|you want some privacy.


Well, if it ain't Hemingway.|A little early for you, isn't it, hon?

- One of those days. Know what I'm sayin'?|- Try this on.

Thank you.


N*gger,|I thought you were dead.

You gonna be dead, motherfucker,|if you ain't got my goddamn money.

Well, today's your lucky day.

I'm here to make good, you know,|put things right between us.

N*gger, things ain't never|gonna be right between us.

But I'm gonna be out|a whole lotta paper if you kick it.

Give me a second and let me calculate|how much you into me for.

Bring me my book, goddamn it.

"See Snake."

It's rare you see a fuckin' snake.

Says here 1 5,000.

That's not takin' into account|interest and all that other shit.

That sounds fair. Thirty. Call it 30.|But you call off the wolves.

Look, n*gger, my word is bond.|It always has been...

unlike some other shiftless|motherfuckers I know.

Yeah, n*gger,|I'm talkin' about you.

If anything happens to you,|it ain't gonna be because of me.

- I can promise you that.|- I know I can count on you.

I'll see your boys, right? Maybe we'll|grab a drink, catch up on old times.

- Don't push your luck, n*gger.|- Yeah.

''Catch up on old times.''|Ain't that some shit?

Jasper, give everybody|in this motherfucker a drink on me.

Today, I'm a free man.

I ain't never known you|to be so generous before, King.

Yeah. Keep the change and,|uh, buy yourself a dick.

So I'm, like, cool.|Back to the room, right?

- I'm ready to do the thang.|- What's the password?

F*ck your mama, bitch.|Stop playin'. Open the door, n*gger.


Hey, Blue, why you wanna talk|to poor Rockie like that?

You need to learn|some manners like Mike.

- Ain't that right, Mike?|- Yes, sir.
