The series offers viewers a window into both sides of what ultimately became the world’s most lucrative business – the import and export of illegal drugs. From the battles between the DEA, local law enforcement, the military and the most righteous of government officials, to the greed driven, even deadlier battles between the multiple cartel factions themselves – riddled with corruption from all sides – the rise of the drug war and major role the U.S. plays in it, being the largest consumer in the world, unfolds before us.
