Synopsis

Filmmaker Adrian Cowell ventures into a remote corner of Myanmar (Burma) known as Shan State, where much of the world's heroin originates. The program chromicles the rise and fall of Khun Sa, a Shan nationalist leader and warlord who has long been a chief target of U.S. drug enforcement. In interviews with drug-war figures ranging from opium farmers to U.S. officials, Cowell unravels the complex political, economic and diplomatic web that surrounds the heroin business.
