Inspired by a true story, “Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema” is an unflinching look into the crime and corruption in the most crime-infested district of Johannesburg, South Africa. Lucky Kunene starts off small with petty crimes as a kid, but quickly graduates to more aggressive heists. In the end, he must stay one step ahead of the law and local drug lords, or his empire, and his life, will come crashing down.
Watch the trailer to get a glimpse of the young hoodlum’s rise from a small-time criminal to a powerful crime entrepreneur during the turbulent years before and after the fall of apartheid.
