It’s a drugs war that’s claimed 40,000 lives and devastated Mexico. The victims are often tortured to death before being buried in mass graves; their families left to mourn in fear of further reprisals. But the war in Mexico is driven as much by corruption as by feuds between rival gangs. Some of the most powerful government figures are in league with the drugs cartels.
We travel through the country, visiting Cuidad Juarez, one of the most dangerous cities in the world; Palomas, a drug infested border town; Culiacan, a hub for the cartels; Mexico City and Washington. We witness horrific crime scenes, speak to witnesses and the victims’ families. Following the police and army at work, we interview experts and even talk to the drug traffickers themselves in a bid to find the principal players in this brutal war.
