“Tobacco Road” investigates the illegal tobacco trade that thrives in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. An indepth look at a multi-billion dollar business that is controlled by organized crime. For more than three years, reporters spread out across Eastern Europe to expose cigarette smuggling and show readers the real cost – in terms of money and lives – associated with a seemingly victimless crime. These same gangs deal in human trafficking, drugs and prostitution. This award winning documentary talks to politicians, police agencies, customs officials, smugglers and tobacco representatives.
