During the 1980s, U.S. Customs Service special agent Robert Mazur uses his undercover alias “Bob Musella” to become a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. Later, he infiltrates the world’s largest cartels and helps discover the money-laundering organization of drug lord Pablo Escobar, and take down Bank of Credit and Commerce International (one of the top ten private banks in the world at the time) which had secretly taken illegal ownership of First American Bankshares in Washington DC.
