Docs and Mags

This thorough international investigation will take us straight to the heart of an illicit traffic responsible for more than 700,000 deaths each year.

From India to the United States, via France and Belgium, this fast-paced investigative report infiltrates the complexities of an extremely lucrative traffic. It goes undercover to meet consumers and victims, reveals the magnitude of the phenomenon, sheds light on the reach of criminal networks, locates producers and exposes distribution channels. Hidden cameras are used to obtain exclusive revelations.

An edifying document, a distress call.
