The characters of this tape are very reminiscent of the heroes of the cult paintings "Cards, money, two trunks" and "Big jackpot". The new gangsters have become older, more experienced, richer, but still take part in the criminal showdowns, which are an integral part of the movie Universe Guy Ritchie.
In the story, the main character, the American Mickey (Matthew McConaughey), built a whole cannabis business empire. He wants to sell his illegal business to American billionaires, but there are others who want to receive part of the profit. After this, showdowns, skirmishes and other attributes begin that Guy Ritchie fans have missed over the past 11 years - all this time the director worked mainly on high-budget franchises that poorly demonstrate his author's style.
