With his drug-smuggling documentary short on financing, moving marijuana seemed the obvious way for cinematographer Allen Long to raise the necessary cash. Millions of dollars later the film had not been made, but Long's own life as a pioneering pot smuggler had played out like a Hollywood movie… seat-of-the-pants flights in a decrepit DC3 into the Colombian badlands, numerous near misses with law enforcement… fast boats, fashion models, fortunes earned and blown… From Mexico to Marin County, from the boardrooms of Manhattan to the midnight streets of Miami, Allen Long's true story is as entertaining as the greatest fiction, a hilarious piece of hair-raising reportage that will keep your pulse racing to the very last page.
