The film "Get Rich or Die" is the story of a black guy from an unfavorable area, who early lost the way of the true, but found the strength and courage to return to him. The picture is based in part on the biography of 50 Cent.
Marcus grew up in such an environment where it was necessary to choose the youngest nails on whose side you are. Here, either you play by the rules of the strong and become a part of their system, or you swim against the current and at best become invisible without prospects and a chance to break up, and at worst you play box very quickly.
Marcus made a choice and, along with his friends, turned into a petty gangster, working for local authority. In their hard work there were a lot of pitfalls, the risk was great, and one day the hero did not stumble, being a hindrance for both his and others. He miraculously survived after the assassination and reconsidered his values, deciding to engage with illegal business and switch to music.
Step by step, Marcus climbs Olympus, becoming a successful rap artist, but will he be able to leave past problems in the past?
