The trailer for an upcoming 2011 feature documentary about the global opium trade. Using interviews with a variety of people affected by the trade – including an opium master in southeast Asia, a UN drug enforcement officer, a former Indian government drug czar, a crusading Vancouver doctor and a Portuguese street worker – the film challenges commonly held assumptions about the war on drugs and the nature of addiction.
