A crime drama that focuses on the small Bahamian island of Norman's Cay, which was turned into the fulcrum of cocaine smuggling and a hedonistic paradise by Carlos Lehder, the right-hand man of Medellin Cartel leader Pablo Escobar. The island of Norman's Cay became the smuggling base for the Medellin Cartel after Lehder took over the island by force, payoffs and bribery - 75% of the cocaine that came to the U.S. in the early 1980s was funneled through the island until the U.S. government launched a full-scale assault -- and Lehder and Escobar turned against each other. Escobar was killed and Lehder captured. The late CBS newsman Walter Cronkite played a major role in bringing down Lehder, which led to the demise of the cocaine cartel. Lehder was sentenced to 125 years."
