Down with the King

The protagonist of Diego Ongaro's second feature is Mercury Maxwell, a famous rapper. Tired and a bit burned out on the celebrity lifestyle, the constant pressure and the music industry's relentless demands, he decides to take a break from his expanding career. He swaps New York for his small hometown in Massachusetts, where he hopes to re-kindle his lost passion. Going back to his roots means a complete change in his life priorities. In a place where time moves at a different pace, he gradually begins to find pleasure in the simple, everyday activities of farm work, particularly when he sees how the small-town farming community welcomes him with open arms. Down with the King is a warm, empathetic, and sometimes surprising story about the need for change and learning to appreciate a slow-paced life. Ongaro's film is a realistic portrait of American country life, with popular rapper Freddie Gibbs making his big screen debut.
