Netflix has dropped a new trailer for an upcoming documentary set for release of the streamer. The film is The Legend Of Cocaine Island and hits the service on the 29th March.
I don’t know too much about this film, but looking around online it looks like it was picked up by Netflix at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Here’s a brief synopsis as provided by Netflix.
This is a tale of a map, buried treasure and a plan. Fueled by a combination of desperation and blissful ignorance, a plan is hatched to retrieve a mythical $2-million stash of cocaine buried in the Caribbean.
Theo Love directs the film. Here’s some more detail.
Rodney Hyden is an American dreamer: a small business owner and familyman from Central Florida. But after he’s wiped out by the Great Recession, Rodney hears a story that could be his ticket out of his mounting debt: a tale of a map, an island and buried treasure. Fueled by a combination of economic desperation and blissful ignorance, Rodney hatches a plan to retrieve a possibly mythical $2-million stash of cocaine from its reported Caribbean hiding place. With the help of a colorful group of misfits—and without prior drug-running experience—Rodney sets out in pursuit of his very own American dream, with surprising results.
I can’t wait to see this. Make sure you add it to your lists as it comes out in just over a week. Here’s that trailer.
