Synopsis by Michael Hastings
A Vancouver man falls into the never-ending cycle of drug dealing -- but what he really wants to do is direct -- in this crime drama. Independently written, produced, directed, and edited by Silvio Pollio, How It All Went Down tells the story of Carmine Cavelli, a would-be filmmaker with dreams of bringing his dominatrix epic V.I.O.L.E.N.T. to the screen. Despite having some training and living in the vibrant film community of Vancouver, Cavelli needs cash for his vision, so he returns to the life of crime that gave him his start. Before long, he becomes known as one of the most powerful drug dealers on the West Coast, and succumbs to addiction himself, despite his admonitions to erstwhile girlfriend (Daniella Evangelista). Pollio first learned of Cavelli in film school; since then, Cavelli went on the lam from authorities.
