One of the most exciting new true crime documentaries of the year, Kings of Coke is a riveting chronicle of how a gang of Irish bank robbers from Montreal rose to become one of North America's most feared criminal organizations. In the 1970s, Montreal gained the unlikely title of bank heist capital of North America. Against a backdrop of urban violence and mayhem, a brazen ring of professional bank robbers and thieves moved into the drug trade, upsetting the traditional power structure. By leveraging the city’s international port and strategic location next to the US border, they began smuggling cocaine on an epic scale. Combining elements of classic film noir and pulp fiction, Kings of Coke reveals an astonishing cast of real-life underworld characters and shines new light on how the global narcotics trade corrupts communities around the world.

Produced by Connect3 Media and URBANIA Media.
