COCAINE UNWRAPPED brings us unprecedented access to the political leaders of Latin America.

With front line reportage from coca farmers in Bolivia, drugs mules in Ecuadorian prisons, cocaine factories in the Colombian jungle, dealers on the streets of Mexico and Baltimore - and consumers from the clubs and dinner tables of the West Cocaine Unwrapped portrays a story of death, economic devastation and human suffering and brings the war on drugs into a completely new light.
