Drama, Suspense/Thriller

Jeremy Renner stars in this story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story about the origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets ... and suggests the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Webb's digging takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the halls of power in Washington, D.C.—and draws dangerous attention.
