This gripping crime drama is based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb who in the 1990s examined the origins of the crack cocaine trade on the streets of the U.S.
Webb’s investigation uncovered evidence suggesting the CIA was aware of and protecting major drug dealers who were smuggling and selling large quantities of cocaine in the Los Angeles ghettos, with profits being funneled to arm Contra rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite enormous pressure not to, Webb pursued the story, going public with his evidence in the controversial newspaper series "Dark Alliance." As a result he experienced a vicious smear campaign fueled by the CIA, forcing him to defend his integrity, his family, and his life.
Rated R. This film is 1 hour and 52 minutes long. Adults only.
