If you live in the US or Canada, you most likely have cocaine in your pocket right now. Go ahead, take out a $5 bill and sniff in the pungent scent of that white powder of which dreams are made of and paid for in blood.
According to an article published by National Geographic, nearly nine out of ten bills circulating in the U.S. and its northern neighbor are tainted with cocaine.
If you ever wondered about the intracacies of the cocaine trade, you will definitely like this drama series which you can watch on Amazon Prime. ZeroZeroZero is a crime drama television series based on the book of the same name by Roberto Saviano. ZeroZeroZero is a study of the business around the drug cocaine, covering its movement across continents. The series stars Gabriel Byrne as the head of the American Lynwood family, controlling an international shipping company which acts as cocaine broker between Mexican and Italian organized crime. The series derives its name from the purest type of flour (000), which is “the nickname among narcotraffickers for the purest cocaine on the market.”
You will not be able to resist binge watching this show. You will feel carried along by this series like you are floating on a soft white cloud, driven along by the hypnotic soundtrack. The soundtrack alone is a good reason to watch this series. The music in the show was composed by Mogwai.
Highly recommended. I give this series 5 out of 5 stars.
