Information
------------------------------

In bleak Afghan villages, the lure of opium cultivation is clear. With no
other viable alternative for farmers and no effective law enforcement by the
Afghan police, growing poppies is the only way for locals to feed their hungry
families. It is this opium that is sold to drug barons and their envoys,
processed into heroin and then smuggled across borders.

In ever-increasing quantities, Afghanistan is flooding the world with heroin,
supplying over 90 per cent of opium to the world market. Most startling is the
effect on the country's youth, since the majority of Afghanistan's growing
number of heroin addicts are under the age of 20. It is a problem that is
further destabilizing the country by undermining tribal structures and
traditions. In this shocking documentary, Afghanistan's Opium Trail takes
viewers for a ride on the drug caravan-from cultivation, to process, to market-
and lifts the curtain on the hidden world of the drug barons
