When a budding relationship between Thurgood and new neighbor Amy take a sudden and unexpected turn, childhood friends turned adult drug dealers, Thurgood and Lazarus, find themselves truly at odds for the first time. A friendship finally revealed for what it is and a momentary mental fracture creates a perfect storm for what happens next. Touching on a host of issues ranging from drugs and violence to spirituality and mental health, KILLING LAZARUS is a film that explores the layers and depths of a group all too often reduced to the easy, one noted narrative of criminality and violence.
