Kings follows an unlikely individual on his relentless pursuit of revenge. After the tragic murder of his brother, Lavell Washington forms a very unlikely alliance with a widowed vigilante and a drug abusing stick up man in order to take down the criminal empire responsible. Revenge is one of the most powerful motivators, and that's what fuels this gritty crime drama. We find Lavell - A man riddled with guilt and lack of closure surrounding his brother's untimely death, finally receiving the chance to avenge his murder; Jack - a widowed vigilante who has taken the law into her own hands; and Skid - a drug abusing criminal on the wrong side of one of the city's biggest crime lords. Lavell, unsettled by the mediocrity of the safe life his brother wanted him to live, receives a phone call that will change his life forever. Jack lures Lavell into her carefully devised plan by the temptation of vengeance and eventually power. On this path, Lavell naively plunges headfirst into the rabbit hole of the city's underworld to complete one task, the assassination of the man responsible for his brother's death, Hector Mendoza. Lavell straddles a thin line of good and evil as he explores every inch of his morality. This challenge is coupled with the task of surviving the uncompromising underbelly of the city. Lavell must fight a battle with his brother's murderers, his supposed alliance and most importantly, within himself throughout this dramatic thriller.
