Summary
Filmed on location in Pakistan, Hamburg, and London, Traffik lays bare the international drug trade by tracing three intersecting lives: Jack, a British government minister who finds the scourge of heroin striking too close to home; Helen, a woman who embarks on a daring survival strategy after her husband's arrest; and Fazal, a Pakistani peasant who works for a menacing drug lord. Starring Bill Paterson (Little Dorrit, Smiley's People), Lindsay Duncan (Rome, Under the Tuscan Sun), and Julia Ormond (Legends of the Fall) in her extraordinary film debut
