Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez

This crime drama based on the book ‘LABryinth’ by Randall Sullivan sees ex-police officer Russell Poole (Johnny Depp) and journalist Jack Jackson (Forest Whitaker) team up to revisit their shared obsession: the murder of Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. Covering the murder of Tupac Shakur, the East and West Coast rivalries rife at the time, and the controversial theories surrounding the LAPD’s involvement in the crimes, Poole and Jackson take on two of the best known unsolved murders in history in this crime thriller. Directed by Brad Furman. Toby Huss, and Dayton Callie co-star.
