Synopsis: The charismatic and ruthless Mussa makes a deal to purchase the Star of East Diamond from Hong-Kong triad crime boss ‘Mr. Lo’ – but not before being robbed via an inside job by his own people – former lovers Aliya and Ruslan. With the help of a friend determined to ferry the back-stabbing duo of Aliya and Rusian across the sea abroad, the couple nearly makes it across the borders with the loot. But Mussa’s gangsters find them just before they escape, leading to a spectacular, violent finale that sets up the surprise ending!
DIAMOND CARTEL was executive produced by Gamal Diab, produced by Dauren Mussa, directed by Salamat Mukhammed-Ali and filmed entirely in Kazakhstan with an estimated budget in the high seven figure range. The Home Entertainment DVD version will be released thru MVD Entertainment Group on June 13, 2017.
