Synopsis

The series follows the journey of a cocaine shipment, from the moment a powerful cartel of Italian criminals decides to buy it until the cargo is delivered and paid for.
Through its characters’ stories, the series explains the mechanisms by which the illegal economy becomes part of the legal economy and how both are linked to a ruthless logic of power and control affecting people’s lives and relationships: Mexican cartels managing the drug’s production, Italian crime syndicates handling worldwide distribution, and American businesses, apparently above suspicion, controlling the seemingly infinite amount of money which this market produces. An epic power struggle is sparked engaging everyone involved, from the corner dealer up to the most powerful boss in the hierarchy of international organised crime— their lives and livelihoods hang in the balance.

Director’s Statement

In the globalised world, markets, production and consumption, even different lifestyles, are all interconnected, thanks to the continuous flow of trade that bring tons of goods to billions of people. In ZeroZeroZero we want to tell the story of just one of these goods: probably the most universally distributed, widely consumed and, above all, most profitable. And we are going to do it by following a container ship and its load from its point of departure in Mexico to its final destination in Italy, describing how the international trafficking of this special ‘commodity’ is affecting the market, the world economy and even our lives. This special good is cocaine, and its journey is our own.
