Director: John Hillcoat.
The events of the film unfold during Prohibition. America was going through hard times at that time. The government was confident that this bill would ultimately help put the country in order and rid the people of hard drinking. As a result, they only made it worse: numerous criminal organizations began to appear that were engaged in the illegal transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages.
The plot focuses on three brothers living in the American South. There are not many ways to earn money in their small settlement. But with the advent of Prohibition, they had a great chance to earn extra money. The guys were well aware that all this could be followed by serious consequences. But they are so strongly integrated into this business that they simply could not stop. But soon local corrupt officials will find out about all this, who are not going to put up with the fact that the brothers do not unfasten them a tidy sum of money for their activities. Gradually, all this leads to numerous criminal showdowns, far from everyone will be able to emerge victorious.
