This richly drawn narco-thriller sees the fall of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Benicio del Toro) as witnessed through the eyes of naive Canadian surfer Nick (Josh Hutcherson). After moving to Colombia to teach his craft and catching the eye of Escobar's niece (Claudia Traisac), Nick is gradually drawn into the family empire. When the authorities eventually catch up with the drug lord, Nick becomes instrumental in helping to disperse his monumental array of assets.
