When rising superstar Len Bias dropped dead two days after being selected as the second overall pick in the 1986 NBA Draft, he forever altered our perception of casual drug use and became the tipping point of America's drug crisis in the mid-80s. Future generations continue to face the harsh punishment of drug policies that were influenced by the public outcry after his heartbreaking death. Instead of becoming an NBA star, he became a one-man deterrent, the athlete who reminded everyone just how dangerous drug use can be. More than two decades later, his tragic death still leaves more questions than answers. How could a University of Maryland superstar and Boston Celtics' lottery pick be derailed by a cocaine binge? In the most ambitious, comprehensive and uncompromising account of Bias' life and death ever captures on film, up-and-coming director Kirk Fraiser interviews Bias' closest teammates, friends and family in an effort to determine exactly what happened on that fateful night.
