Storyline

The Hamburg police arrest an international businessman, charging him with smuggling heroin from Pakistan. While he's on trial, his trophy wife, a former Olympic swimmer, discovers steely ruthlessness within herself. In Pakistan, the British home minister tours the poppy-eradication project and returns to London to find that his daughter is a heroin addict. While trying to save her, and helped by a crusading attorney, he learns the limits of government policy. Fazal, a peasant burned off his land where he farmed poppies, goes to Karachi and works for Tarik Butt, a murderous drug lord. Fazal's frankness and sense of worth are his strength and his liability. Stories cross and collide. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the best miniseries I have ever seen !
5 July 2001 | by ztesslerSee all my reviews

I agree with the main summary of this mini-series ! The characters are not just all bad or all good (like many American movies). I enjoyed it immensely and the time just flew by so that instead of being a 6-hour series, it was engrossing enough to appear to be 2 hours' long. All the characters were finely drawn, and not just cardboard characters. Congratulations for a mini-series that still stands up in 2001! Personally. I found it better than the movie because it devoted more time to "flesh out" the characters !
