Where you can watch this movie:


Documentary critique of the US government's drugs policy. Inspired by the story of Nanni Jeter, a friend and employee of writer and director Eugene Jarecki, the film includes interviews with police officers, judges, prison staff, dealers, addicts and their families, medics and experts on social policy, including investigative journalist turned screenwriter, David Simon, creator of the political drama series 'The Wire'.

Our review

"Eugene Jarecki's sombre and informative documentary makes a staggeringly water-tight case against the war on drugs thanks to an array of strong interviews and talking heads. Powerful in its approach and an important piece of non-fiction."
