They get involved with drug dealers and soon make their own cocaine empire. However, one of them is too arrogant and both dealers and cops go after him. This movie shows the rise and fall of this particular drug dealer/gangster.

This is the remake of the 1930's Scarface. It has the same story line. The one difference is this is a Cuban gangster. Most of the acts of crime he commits are for cocaine.
