The cocaine trade of the '70s and '80s had an indelible impact on contemporary Miami. Smugglers and distributors forever changed the once sleepy retirement community and turned it into one of the world's most glamorous hot spots and the epicenter of a $20 billion annual business fed by Colombia's Medellin Cartel. By the early '80s, Miami's tripled homicide rate had made it the murder captial of the country.

Cocaine Cowboys is a matter of fact documentary about the cocaine trade in Miami. The movie tells the real life stories of a major dealer, a smuggler, an enforcer as well as local, state and federal law enforcement personnel. Miami went from a sleepy resort destination to the cocaine capital of the world in just a few decades. Billions of dollars in drugs were involved making those in the business rich and creating Miami's robust and lively economy. On the down side the city's homicide rate skyrocketed due to cartel turf wars and vendettas. The movie has graphic images so it is not for the feint of heart.
