Cut Throat City is a directed drama film by RZA. The story is written by P.G. Cuschieri. It revolves around four childhood friends who return to New Orleans after their hometown was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Blink, a New Orleans resident who is a struggling artist, gets married and has to find out a way to feed his family after the storm takes away everything that they had earned or owned.
FEMA does not help them to rebuild and after frequent rejections from job interviews. After running out of options, the four friends join to rob a local Casino for the most ruthless gangster ‘Cousin’ Bass. After completing the heist, which they thought was successful, they realize that they have been set up, and everyone, including the cops, is on it.
The easy heist that they once believed in leads to the death of one of their friend, and they run for their lives from the gangster and the police. Two detectives come into picture Detective Lucinda Valencia and city councilman Jackson Symms who wants to bring them safely, which they are not aware of.
