Counterfeit

Can you live honestly in a dishonest world? Malik, a West African immigrant, has found his small corner of the American Dream hustling illegal knockoffs and turning small cons on unsuspecting tourists in New York’s Chinatown. For him it’s just business. Until a fellow emigré entreats him to sell a briefcase of real Rolexes in this sea of counterfeits.
