Kill Kapone is a realistic, hyper-violent action/drama that follows gang member, Kapone through the gritty alleys of East L.A. while getting chased all day by his own vicious gang. The story unfolds when Kapone’s parole agents, Webster and Ardmore wake him up early in the day to take him in for violating his parole. Unfortunately for Kapone, while escaping through one of the alleys, he comes across a vindictive dope fiend who is hard up for his next fix. Kapone denies him of his fix which infuriates the dope fiend. To get back at Kapone, Georgie labels Kapone a snitch to his own hood. As it turns out, Georgie is the one who witnesses a gruesome murder committed by gang member Marcos. Marcos, the younger brother of gang leader Crow, is the culprit of killing an innocent woman in the alley so Ardmore and Webster pressure Georgie to come up with the name of the murderer or face a jail term himself. In order to save his own ass, Georgie snitches on Marcos who then gets arrested for the homicide. When Crow gets wind that Georgie may have been the one who snitched on his brother, Georgie shifts the blame to Kapone. This sets off a long and brutal day for Kapone who will find himself running for his life while constantly getting shot at from his own people. Shot caller Crow is furious at Kapone for having him “drop a dime” on his little brother so he puts a “green light” on Kapone with a group of young baby-faced killers. Hood prospects Sick, Fresco and Blind are given the mission to whack Kapone no matter what it takes. The trio wants to move up the gang’s ladder so they are intent on blowing away Kapone before the day’s end. This makes it a “no-where-to hide” situation for Kapone. As a result of the 12 action packed hours, almost a dozen people are killed in the worst day for gang-related homicides in the history of East L.A.
