STORY LINE: Tears is a story about two childhood friends, Tyrone Banks (T-Banks) and Mike Lane (Monster Mike) who grow up in the menacing inner city streets of a metropolitan city selling narcotics. While dodging the authorities and other D-Boy cliques, the two manage to become the drug suppliers of, not only the city they’re in, but also several other major cities across the nation. For years, the Russian Mafia has supplied the crew and things are going better than expected until Monster Mike, against the better judgment of T-Banks, decides to start dealing with a notorious Colombian kingpin, Guierrmo Manuel. Because of the death of the Russian mob boss, Mike is propelled to do the deal with the Columbians, but THE DEAL is not the only thing Manuel has in mind. After Mike turns down an offer by Manuel, their lives are instantly MARKED FOR DEATH! Unbeknownst to Banks and Mike, their lawyer and a shady politician are working to bring them to their demise, while the Columbians are hard at work doing the same. In the midst of the chaos, Mike gets word that he has a second child on the way which prompts him to rethink his life goals, and he decides to retire from the game. After Mike disappears for a few days, Banks is visited by Manuel and given an ultimatum that could change their lives forever…kill his best friend Mike, or suffer a total “BLACK OUT” of both their families!
