In 1970s America, a detective works to bring down the drug empire of Frank Lucas, a heroin kingpin from Manhattan, who is smuggling the drug into the country from the Far East.
While Frank's cousin is wearing a wire, he stands at a distance while Frank is on the phone. In the next scene, when the tape is played for the police, both sides of the phone conversation can be heard, which would be impossible from an external microphone at a distance.
At the end of the closing credits, Frank Lucas approaches the camera and fires one shot from a pistol directly at the audience.
