LUCIOUS LYON (Terrence Howard)
After pouring his blood, sweat and tears into building one of the music industry's biggest companies, mogul Lucious Lyon is on the brink of taking his empire to the next level. He has three talented sons among whom he can choose his successor, a beautiful and adoring girlfriend, and his business affairs all lined up to take his label public.
Unfortunately for Lucious, however, fate is always in the mix. A terminal illness diagnosis hastens his plans to choose which son shall inherit his life's work. The battle among them to prove who is the worthiest candidate is only inflamed when his ex-wife Cookie is released from prison, hell-bent on taking back her half of the company.
Will all that Lucious has built crumble underneath him?
