In Frankfort, Kentucky, there once stood a small community that was known as Crawfish Bottom, also called The Craw. It was known for its filthiness, drinking, prostitution, and violence; and one man controlled it all. John Fallis moved to Frankfort when he was young and after a troubling childhood of loss and being bullied, he became the most prominent figure in Frankfort. By the 1920s he was a political boss, bootlegger, gambling guru, womanizer, and ran a prostitution business. He was the most feared man in Frankfort, until the local police and the United States Marshal Service came knocking at his door. From there, The Craw was thrown into years of violence, terror, and corruption as blood is shed and John defends his turf, friends, family, women, and Crawfish Bottom. Based on a True Story.
