Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, White Boy Rick is based on the moving true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe Jr., who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.

Matthew McConaughey, who stars in the film, will introduce the film and participate in a post-screening discussion with AFS founder Richard Linklater.
