Storyline

The life of drug lord Griselda Blanco, a pioneer in the Miami-based cocaine trade. At the age of 17, Griselda Blanco, made her way to the U.S. with a fake passport with her first husband Carlos. Living in Queens with her three sons, Griselda became enticed by the money the drug world offered, and quickly became embroiled with local drug runners. Griselda masterminded the use of beautiful women, the elderly and children as the mules and created false-bottom suitcases to smuggle cocaine from Colombia. With money rolling in, her sons abandoned school and entered the family business instead. Written by AnonymousB

I'm just hear to read the comments from ppl complaining why CZJ was cast as Griselda
20 February 2019 | by natcalgarySee all my reviews

I knew there would be lots of them. She was cast because she was the best option. She did a great acting job even if the movie wasn't factually correct,
