Synopsis

In this documentary sequel to the film that followed the development of the cocaine trade in 1980s-era Miami, filmmaker Billy Corben details the rise of Oakland, CA-based cocaine dealer Charles Cosby, who went from small-time drug slinger to multi-millionaire in a matter of months. Back in the early '90s, Cosby was selling ounces on the street and struggling to survive. Later, after writing a fan letter to "Cocaine Godmother" Griselda Blanco, who was serving a sentence in a federal prison, Cosby and Blanco struck up a lucrative partnership. Just six short months later, Cosby and Blanco were lovers, and the former fan now placed in charge of Blanco's 40-million-dollar a year cocaine business. But over the years, Blanco had earned the nickname "The Black Widow" for her propensity to drain men dry and permanently dispose of them when they ceased to be of use to her. Before long, Blanco becomes obsessed with ensuring that Cosby is faithful to her, and the former small-time drug dealer finally begins to realize that he may have inadvertently gotten in over his head. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
