    • Synopsis
    • Joaquin 'El Chapo' (Shorty) Guzman is now the most powerful drugs lord in history - and one of the world's most wanted men. A near mythical figure, who has evaded capture for over ten years, he is - depending on who you talk to - either a brilliant business visionary, an amoral and ruthless murderer, a revolutionary hero or a magnanimous latter day Robin Hood.
      Filmmakers Angus Macqueen and Guillermo Galdos set themselves on a perilous and quixotic quest into the Mexican sierra and the heart of "Shorty's" forbidden lands to try to find him. What they discover will forever change the way we see the war on drugs.
