Drug Lord: The Legend Of Shorty

To some, he is a revolutionary hero and a latter-day Robin Hood, the powerful peasant who looks after his people. To others, he is Public Enemy No.1, the first since Al Capone. He has been on the run for over a decade from the US and Mexican governments. In the middle over 80,000 Mexicans have been murdered.
The film takes us into a world few outsiders have ever been, knocking on the door of the most wanted man in the world. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW]
