About the film:
Rick Wershe was a teen living in Detroit in the 1980s when he joined the ranks of the city's drug kingpins, trafficking cocaine on the predominantly black East Side and going by the name "White Boy Rick." Wershe also worked as an undercover informant for the FBI and DEA while simultaneously rising to become one of the biggest drug dealers in the city. At the age of 17, he was arrested for selling 8 kilos of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He remains in prison to this day, and is now in his mid-40s.
