Synopsis

To a growing number of Mexicans and Latinos in the Americas, narco-traffickers have become iconic outlaws, glorified by musicians who praise their new models of fame and success. They represent a pathway out of the ghetto, nurturing a new American dream fueled by an addiction to money, drugs and violence. This explosive look at the drug cartels' pop culture influence on both sides of the border is seen as experienced by an L.A. narcocorrido singer who dreams of stardom, and a Juarez crime scene investigator on the front line of Mexico's drug war.
