Based on the controversial Nick McDonell novel, "Twelve" follows high school dropout turned successful drug dealer White Mike in New York's Upper East Side. Business is booming when all of the kids are home from boarding school and everyone has money to blow. Mike leads a double life, concealing the truth from his childhood friend Molly while his supplier Lionel pulls Mike further into the world of the Manhattan drug trade. Mike's two lives begin to collide when his cousin is brutally murdered on an East Harlem playground and a new drug, twelve, emerges as the recreational drug of choice. On the Upper East Side, it's not about what you need; it's all about want.
