The story of Adriano, an Afro-Brazilian drug kingpin torn between a violent but lucrative world and the woman he’s loved his entire life. But be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.
Based on the novel by Jersey City author, Daniel Ali, who also wrote and produced the film, Love and the Game is the story of Adriano de Souza, a young, Afro-Brazilian street hustler torn between a lucrative but violent world and Paz Montenegro, the woman he’s loved his entire life. When fate reunites the two of them after years apart, even though Paz is now married to another man, neither can resist the attraction and soon they put it all on the line for love. "But the Game don't stop," and AD is running out of time fast. The two lovers wrestle with their own pain and secret coping mechanisms as they struggle to balance life with betrayal and deception. Love and the Game exposes the truths of fast-life allure and the American lust for material gain, but also offers a unique and timely perspective of the conflicted, inner humanity of many of those who get caught up but whose voices are often muted.
