Kill the Messenger

Kill the Messenger

Can you keep a national secret?
  • I think they're onto me ...

Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb, who stumbled onto a story which lead to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets and further alleged that 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. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. ... and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.
