Bronx native Kraig Lewis was set to graduate with a Master's and get his son out of the rough streets of New York. His plans are interrupted when he gets caught up in the city's largest gang bust in history. Now, he has to find a new path forward.

It is an intimate portrait of a young man swept up in New York's biggest untold criminal justice story. An excellent student halfway in and out of gang life in the Bronx, Kraig Lewis was in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was caught in a bust conducted by 700 FBI, NYPD and ICE officials and prosecuted by Preet Bharara. Lewis, along with 119 others, were prosecuted under a law originally designed to target mobs but are now increasingly used against low-income neighborhoods of color in New York. Trouble Finds You explores not only race, the effects of incarceration on Lewis's life and family after jail, but also how this little-known conspiracy law called the RICO Act can derail promising futures, wrecking families and communities.
