This is the original, award-winning drama which inspired the Oscar-winning film Traffic. Powerful, gripping, compelling viewing, and in many ways superior to the movie that followed, Traffik explores the murderous business of the heroin trade from opium fields in Pakistan to our very own front door. This spiderlike tale of creeping intensity revolves around Jack Lithgow a government minister, whose engagement in tempering the drug trade flowing from Pakistan is affected by the discovery that his young daughter is a heroin addict and the realisation that his efforts are empty politics with little result. Parallel to this runs the story of Fazal, an opium farmer who, when his crop is destroyed, enslaves himself to a ruthless drug-dealer, Tariq Butt, crossing one line after another until everything he cares for is at risk. Meanwhile in Germany, two cops risk their lives to break the traffic of heroin into their country, imprisoning one importer, only to discover that his wife can be even more ruthless and more deadly. They are all about to discover through life, death and addiction that you can perhaps stop a shipment, but you can never stop the Traffik.
