The Life I Didn't Choose
Anthony Dupree's "The Life I Didn't Choose", is a web-series drama about Andre Sparks (Eddie Shepard), who is one of the most high ranked hustlers in the city of Wilmington. Growing up living in foster care and being separated from his younger brother Jasper (Brian Jones), Dre never really understood family and the value of trust. Once Dre grasped all that loyalty entailed, he took it and ran with it. Dre’s loyalty is now tested when he must make a decision between protecting somebody he NEVER knew from getting killed by the one he’s been answering to for years; the streets. Anthony Dupree takes viewers on a journey as he addresses brotherhood, commitment, family and loyalty. Every action has a consequence and every reaction has a life sentence.
