Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb, the film takes place in the mid-1990s. Webb uncovered the CIA’s alleged role in importing cocaine into the U.S. to secretly fund the anti-Communist Nicaraguan rebels called “Contras” via the manufacture and sale of crack. Despite enormous pressure to stay away, Webb chose to pursue the story and went public with his evidence, publishing the series called “Dark Alliance”. He then experienced a vicious smear campaign fueled by the CIA, during which he found himself defending his integrity, his family, and his life.
