Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard, Crash, Hustle & Flow) is the king of hip-hop. An immensely talented artist, the CEO of Empire Entertainment and a former street thug, his reign has been unchallenged for years.

The clock is ticking, and he must groom one of his three sons to take over his crowning achievement, without destroying his already fractured family.
