Kings County is a 2003 urban drama that follows the lives and struggles of four Brooklyn teenagers. They have dreams of escaping the slums, but the only avenue that seems to be available to them is drug dealing. A police officer's gun makes its way into their possession and suddenly their lives are irrevocably altered, sent on a course of death and incarceration. A Santeria priestess, Ethiopia (Heather Simms), predicts from the midst of a crack high that within a day one of them will be dead and one of them will be in jail. The boys are torn between the promises of a quick fortune along with an escape from their macabre and dangerous world, and their consciences, which hang over them like the prophetesses' words. Kings Country is based on a true story and stars many at risk youth who actually live in the Brooklyn projects in which the film takes place.
